Macy's Herald Square New York City rolls out the Snowman for the Holiday Season

Once again we find the snowman (or in this case, snowgirl) becoming a spokesperson for the holiday season. 


Meet Sunny the Snowpal, the mascot for Macy's "Believe in the Wonder of Giving" 2018 holiday theme.

According to CBS Station, WUSA9, the store's holiday window theme centers on Sunny the Snowpal, a space-age snowgirl who helps her friends and makes sure Santa's sleigh travels safely on New Years Eve.

You can read more about how the artist Roya Sullivan came up with the idea of Sunny the cosmonaut Snowpal, here at the WUSA9 news site.

If you have the chance to visit the store in New York City, you will 
be greeted by multiple displays of Sunny, including a large scale version - 
that is ready for your Instagram selfie.

The Wonder of Giving Sunny can by yours for $20.00

Sunny is "selfie-ready" for her closeup here on the main floor in Herald Square.
