Christmas in Paris

Well, there's all sorts of lovely christmas decorations going up, and although I'm not normally the Christmassy-sort (even if I do tend to fly 18 000 kilometres out of my way for the event whenever I can), the festivities are worth photographing. This year, I'm going to make Daniel take me ice skating at town hall - no excuses meester! Ballofdirt promised a facility at one point where you could upload videos - I took some of the wonderful department store windows, but there's no mention of it now...

So here is a photo journal of what the few weeks before Christmas are like in Paris (see you at the January sales!). I'm going to stick some more photos up as I go along, and watch-this-space in case I figure out what to do with my videos.

I didn't find my Christmas pudding here though, but at Galeries Lafayette These fern thingies reminded me of NZ, stark contrast to the bare trees!
