Cosmic Christmas at the Galeries Lafayette

It doesn’t feel like Christmas at the moment in Paris with the unusually warm weather we’re having, but I still couldn’t resist popping into the Galeries Lafayette to have a look at this year’s tree.

After last year’s upside-down Christmas tree this season they have gone for a gold and glitter extravaganza – a cosmic tree made from meteorites under a shower of stars.  It’s always a pleasure to admire the gorgeous glass dome, and impossible not to love Paris when she’s at her glamorous and over the top best for Christmas.

  1. You´re right, the weather really doesn´t feel like Christmas as I know it; coming from Bavaria/Germany we also had very very ugly winter weather if not on Christmas itself, then in January. So I´m really really glad to see how mild winter can be here in Paris (for it´s my first winter here). – The Lafayette decoration really is so over the top! Wishing you de très bonnes fêtes, Sabine
