Â Europe isn’t quite as fast off the mark for signs of Christmas as the States. It wasn’t until last week that I started seeing Christmas decorations for sale in the stores and I am just starting to see windows decorated for Christmas. They turned on the holiday lights on the treesÂ lining the Champs Elysees a few days ago so I guess I will have to get in gear and put up a few things in our place. Maurice wants a tree this year. I wouldn’t mind doing without one, being the Scrooge that I am, but I guess I will have to do more this year than just buy a poinsettia like I did last year. Anyway, here are a few photos recently taken around Paris.
They did this last year around the Place Vendome area-put up chandeliers of plastic that look like glass from a distance.
Â Not exactly a Christmas color, and I think it may be permanent but I like it.
Laudaree Tea Shops are known for their windows. Usually the decorations are in pastel colors but for Christmas they are going more elegant looking with black, red and gold.
I like it!
