Tiffany & Co.'s iconic annual holiday display will go on!

A local TV station reported the designer jewelry company had canceled its "Holiday Window Spectacular" due to security concerns because of Donald Trump's "post-election activity" nearby.

Indeed, a spokesman from Tiffany's said Monday's unveiling was canceled, but clarified that the holiday show itself will be there for all to see.

The FIfth Avenue flagship store will feature sparkling vignettes of New York City at the holidays, and the facade will be illuminated as planned.
