SALT LAKE CITY — We may be only three weeks into December, but artist Jonnie Hartman has been in the holiday spirit for months, designing and building the Grand America Holiday Window Stroll.

Three miles of fluffy yarn, 18 pounds of hand-applied glitter and 2,000 hours of sketching later and Hartman has transformed each of The Grand America Hotel's 15 decorated holiday windows into this year’s display, titled “Winter A to Z.”

The displays also include a life-size yeti made of 96 square feet of Mongolian yeti fur, a Jack Frost winter scene built with 150 hand-painted ice shards, a choir of angels singing 100 handmade golden notes and Santa Claus, whose beard consists of 258 copies of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
