Lord & Taylor has been celebrating the holiday season by decorating their windows for passersby since 1938. This year's windows were inspired by an illustration from the 1940s that asked "What Is Christmas Made Of?" The displays feature illustrations drawn by children in response to this question, and scenes representing the kids' ideas, from sledding to seeing Santa.
