Christmas show windows again, again, again….

So once more there is time to look at the Christmas show windows, once again the ones of “Galeries Lafayette” and the “Printemps”. Here you can compare with the ones in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. I also show the famous Christmas tree, each year different, under the cupola of the “Galeries Lafayette” – see also top picture.

Here is this time a mixture of photos from the two department stores. The ones of “Printemps” were this year inaugurated by Nicole Kidman. I wasn’t present. The crowds watching the windows are important - one expects some ten million people to have seen the windows before the Christmas season is over.

What a wonderland, Peter. Oh, this is truly something I would love to see. The details are terrific and they're so imaginative. I can't begin to think how many hours it must take for the windows to be prepared -- no doubt covered with paper or drapery until the big reveal! What a festive way to begin the season.

I always remember my excitement as a child when we got to take the train into Chicago to see the windows at Marshall Fields. It was truly like a fairy land though windows have progressed a long way since then.

The windows are stunning. It must take a lot of planning to make different Christmas designs every year.... and then somewhere to store it all until it's needed again, wow!
