It’s Christmas time! And like every year, I’ll celebrate it with the family, in our country side home in Normandy, France. As I reached Paris late afternoon, with the Air India direct flight from Delhi, I stopped by the departmental stores Printemps & Galeries Lafayette situated near to Opéra in the 9e arrondissement. Paris indeed undergoes a complete transformation during the festive season. The monuments are illuminated, Christmas decorations adorn the streets, and department store windows are filled with animated displays.
And this year’s Xmas theme at Galeries Lafayette is featuring the famous “Parisian pigeons”. The temperatures went down rather quickly, a thermal shock for someone coming from India! A lot of locals and tourists, especially families with kids came to discover this year’s windows displays. The installations are creative and funny, some of them feature famous luxury brands. A captivating evening that inspires a childlike wonder.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!
