Of all the places to visit
during the Christmas season, there are a few icons: New York for shopping and
Rockefeller Center; Finland for Santa's village; the Caribbean for the
anti-White Christmas. But what about somewhere a bit more elegant, a bit more
cosmopolitan, a bit more romantic?
Paris is already home to some
of the world's most elegant department stores, designer fashions and often
ostentatious displays. As you might expect, these go into overdrive during
Christmastime. Be sure not to miss the shopping center Galeries Lafayette, with
its dome and Belle Epoque architecture, as well as the chic Au Printemps and Le
Bon Marche stores on the left bank. Afterward, head to the Champs-Elysees, Paris'
most famous street and gawk at the holiday displays and giant Christmas bows
that line the streets.
Christmas is a magical time
of year in many cities – but in Paris, you might have your most memorable
Christmas of all.
