Macy's Herald Square welcomes America's top frog, Kermit the Frog to co-host the unveiling of Broadway's most famous holiday windows this Friday November 22nd.

View our Macy's Photo Gallery to see all your favorite Muppets celebrate the season.

Once again and in time-honored fashion, the world's largest store raises the curtain of its six famous holiday windows to mark the beginning of the season. In a special unveiling at Macy's Herald Square's Broadway entrance, the six windows between 34th and 35th Streets will showcase Kermit and the Muppets ice-skating at Rockefeller Center to a carriage ride through Central Park. Each frame depicts a scene that is synonymous with the Big Apple. The sixth and final frame finds the Muppets arriving at Herald Square in this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Moments before the windows unveiling, Macy's Santaland Express will lead the holiday charge as it departs from Bryant Park to arrive at Herald Square. Carrying a special cargo of good little boys an girls, the steam engine will spread holiday cheer all the way down 6th Avenue to Macy's Herald Square on Broadway.

In addition, the miracle will continue at Macy's as four of the 34th Street windows pay tribute to the timeless magic created by Twentieth Century Fox's "Miracle on 34th Street," the 1947 Hollywood film classic that immortalized Santa Claus' special relationship with Macy's.

On Thanksgiving Day during the Macy's Parade, Kermit will be honored with a new balloon. A commemorative Kermit doll is now available at Macy's stores across the country. Kermit comes with a camera and a roll of film. He's a "Frogtographer" wearing a hat with ear flaps that hang down. Macy's has also released a beautiful Thanksgiving Day Parade 2002 Snowglobe featuring Kermit leading the other balloons across the New York skyline. A commemorative 2002 Kermit Christmas Ornament has also been released by Lenox.

The Macy's Parade will air on November 28th, Thanksgiving Thursday, at 9 am eastern, 8 am central on NBC. The following evening, the Muppets are featured in their first made-for-tv movie "It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie" on NBC at 8 pm eastern, 7 central.
