Day 325 - Myer Christmas windows

Myer Christmas windows have been a seasonal attraction in the city of Melbourne (a little) longer than I've been around. This year's theme is based on the Olivia picture book series, more specifically, Olivia helps with Christmas. Previous themes have ranged from traditional children's tales, such as Cinderella, Pinocchio and the Snow Queen, to more local stories, such as Graeme Base's Uno's garden and May Gibbs' The gumnut babies. If you're interested, here's a list of themes dating back to 1956.

Sorry about the poor quality shots with window reflections.


  1. I love Olivia - delightful windows - I wonder if they thought about the swine flu when they chose a pig for the theme this year ;-)

  2. Ha ha, yes, how appropriate. Or maybe they didn't think of the swine flu, otherwise they may have chosen a different theme.
