I really had to make myself get out after dark to get some Christmas photos. I don’t know why I don’t realize how great it is once I arrive. I guess it’s just hard to leave a warm apartment especially if I’ve already been out during the day. On this night, I headed to the giant departments stores, Printemps and Galeries Lafayette which are always impressive.

Printemps lights were really outstanding.

Cute windows for the kids. Prada was also a part of it.

Galeries Lafayette has the most outstanding Christmas tree under that fabulous dome.

I went to the top of Printemps hoping to get outside on their terrace for photos. They wouldn’t let me as it was dark. I hope to see the Eiffel Tower too but fog had descended and it couldn’t be seen. I took this photo of la Madaleine church in the distance.

This is the church again-the colors changed as you watched. There are lights shining upwards on the side of the church but with this street light in the position it’s in in my photo, it looks like a celestial light shining down-or maybe a space ship.

One more shot. So pretty.
