Charming Christmas decorations and window displays in Paris

    
    Every year when waiting for the Christmas I miss Paris (where I was happy to study and live for a year)  thinking how stunning it is on winter. In front of l'Hôtel de Ville, housing the city administration, free skating-rink is being opened. At the end of November holiday lights displays are being switched on on the Champs Elysées, usually by a star, this year Laetitia Casta. Fabulous Christmas lights and window displays appear at Paris Department Stores - real pieces of art, designed by world class artists. The most impressive are always the displays at Printemps Department Store, it goes all along the building's facade. In the Christmas season in Paris it's great to take a long walk in the neighbourhood of the Opera to see more amazing displays, in the windows of Galeries Lafayettes and other luxurious stores. 
    Paris is fantastic in every time of the year, but in the Christmas season probably the most. Take a look and see for yourselves.
