As we mentioned yesterday, Neiman Marcus's downtown flagship will formally unveil this year's Christmas window display Friday night, just before they light the big ol' Christmas sculptree in Main Street Garden. But downtown denizens have already had their sneak preview: Justin Terveen was downtown yesterday as set decorator Ignaz Gorischek and his elves were putting the final touches on the kiddie tube, and he sent Unfair Park a handful of early looks at the extraordinary display. (Justin's covering tomorrow night's shindig as well.) As not to spoil the surprise for those who prefer waiting to open their presents till the very last minute, I'm putting the entire series of photos after the jump.
