Santaland History
Chicago

Macy's on State Street has long been Santa's home away from home. More than 70 years ago, the historic Marshall Field's building was where children visited Santa in "Cozy Cloud Cottage." The Cottage was the home of Uncle Mistletoe and Aunt Holly, who helped Santa keep track of good boys and girls. They were storewide mascots at Marshall Field's for 44 years.

The décor in present-day Macy's Santaland is a nod to the origial Cozy Cloud Cottage.Today, a trip to Santaland would not be complete without visiting the Walnut Room and viewing the windows on State Street.

Today, a trip to Santaland would not be complete without visiting the Walnut Room and viewing the windows on State Street.

For more than a century, the tree has stood in the Walnut Room to celebrate the season, while the animated holiday windows have entertained kids of all ages for over 50 years.

For many families, visiting State Street during the holidays is a tradition that has been passed down for generations.
