Here’s the second round of holiday window decorations, as promised yesterday. The winners were announced Monday afternoon and I have those listed at the bottom, so you can pick your favorites and make you predictions before you see them. As I did yesterday, I’m sprinkling in other pretty decorations from around the city, such as the Holston tree above.

Of course, you are seeing them through my lens, which isn’t the same as seeing them in person – preferably at night when the lights make them a bit prettier. It really is an exciting, high-energy time to be in the city. Christmas all the way through New Year seems to be such a hopeful time. Things just seem a little more possible this time of year.

I’m going to let the photographs run their course at this point. In case you are wondering how I came up with this order of presentation: I didn’t. My computer did after I named them by location. They are more or less alphabetical. Check the end to see the winners.

Ok, so have you picked out the best? Here’s what the judges and the other people who voted came up with:

Public’s Favorite: Robin Easter, 132 West Jackson Ave (the Santa on the Snowmobile from yesterday)
-Best “White Christmas” Themed: Rococo Boutique, 2 Market Square
-3rd place overall Best Decorated Window: Coldstream Market, 34 Market Square (yesterday)
-2nd place overall Best Decorated Window: Bradley’s Chocolate Factory, 1060 World’s Fair Park Drive
-1st Place overall for the Best Decorated Window: Rick Terry Jewelers, 618 S. Gay Street

I missed the Chocolate Factory, but I’ll make up for that very soon. In the meantime, come down and enjoy the fun and the beauty of it all. There really is something special about the city streets this time of year. I even had some magic happen on the street today, which I’ll also tell you about, soon.
