CHRISTMAS CHEER: Matthew Surrey, 4, watches the unveiling of Ballantynes' annual Christmas window display from his father Chris' shoulders.

Ballantynes has unveiled its traditional Christmas window displays.

Matthew Surrey enjoyed the view from the safety of his father Chris Surrey's shoulders yesterday.

The four-year-old, who was dressed as a king, said the best part was when the curtains opened. He said he especially liked a display featuring elves packaging lollies.

"There was a good crowd of families down there," said his father.

"We have just moved down from Pukekohe and this was our first time watching the unveiling of the windows. It is the first official Christmassy thing we have done this year."
