Fun Christmas Photos, Thanks! The floor at Macy's department store is amazing, looks like my living room on Christmas morning when I was a kid! Great "12 Days" Series Richard, thanks so much!

I love the photos. A vintage Christmas is even beautiful in black and white, isn't it?

Yes, that Macy's floor is hilarious. Can that be for real? You can almost imagine a scene like a piranha feeding frenzy.
