Myer Christmas Animated Windows
November 9 @ 12:00 am - December 24 @ 11:30 pm
Christmas is coming, and that means quintessentially Melbourne Myer Christmas Animated Windows have been revealed for another year. This year’s theme features a modern interpretation of the popular children’s book Alice in Wonderland, written by Lewis Carroll. And the scenes are set to make the kids of Melbourne squeal with delight.
The windows take 10 months to create with 15 people working full-time In total, the six windows have taken 12,000 hours of manpower from start to finish, with 40 artisans working to bring the animation to life.
The Myer Christmas Animated Windows are recognised internationally and each year, more than 1.2 million children and adults visit them, making it a traditional part of their Christmas celebrations.
Now in its 63rd year, we hear that Myer judges the success of the windows by how grubby the glass gets, with every grotty smudge on the window panes a vote in favour. No doubt they’ll have a hard time keeping them clean this year.
