You've heard it before, but it's kind of the truth. The holiday season in New York City has a rep for being magical. The big Thanksgiving parade, ice skating at Rockefeller Center, and gazing at the production that is department store holiday windows while ear-pleasing tunes from the Fifth Harmony ladies play in the background. Think we made up that last part? No, that really happened.

The Fifth Harmony girls, previous X Factor stars who are on their way to big things, showed up at NYC's own Lord and Taylor and put on a performance for the big window unveiling. We caught up with the bubbly and super witty girls and talked holiday shopping, thanksgiving plans, and of course, pop culture.

OK!: Do you have some tips for holiday shopping with your best friends?

Dinah: You should know what they like.

Lauren: If anything, you should subtly hint it. If you really don’t know what to get them, say, "Hey, I’m so excited that it’s Christmas. What do you think you want to get. I know I want to get this."

OK!: What are you most thankful for in pop culture this year?

Lauren: Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance laughs

Camila: I’m thankful for Macklemore with his songs about equal rights. I think he stands up for what he believes in—and "Thrift Shop."

OK!: What’s a weird food that you eat on Thanksgiving that’s still really good?

Normani: Is fried turkey weird? No, that’s pretty normal.

Dinah: It’s kind of like bread pudding, but better. You put it in the oven. You cut up the bread. You pour the milk—I’ll say leche for you, Lauren—on top. It comes out and is super warm and soft and fluffy.

OK!: Are you going to any holiday parties?

Fifth Harmony: We’re going to the AMAs. We’re going to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. We’re on the Goldfish float!
