As usual during Christmas, Paris will once more, have a lot to offer this year! Many different events will be playing their game in the heart of the city!
For the first time, the Place de la Concorde will be displaying quite a Christmas tree! The highest natural tree in Europe! 35 meters high, the same size as the Obelisque, sitting right next to it! An interesting couple. The tree was given to Paris as a gift by TV channel Nickelodeaon and it will be be hosting many little events during the time of its “stay”.
Just accross the Place de la Concorde, the famous Champs Elysees illuminations were launched by actress Diane Kruger. Along the the Champs Elysees, you will be able to enjoy the Christmas market.
Christmas is also shopping ! And speaking of which, a little tour to the department stores will take you to some extra magic! The Galeries Lafayette are celebrating 100years of its Coupole (dome). For the occasion, Swarovski has imagined an amazing creation: a huge Christmas tree (again!), 21 meters high, all decorated with Swarovski crystals! The tree is sitting on a chandelier made of more than 5000 Swarovski stars… Quite unique!
As for the Printemps, DIOR has created 9 window displays to be discovered until the 9th of January ! It shows animated dolls/ puppets all dressed up by DIOR couture. Their adventures can be followed through the displays! For kids and adults!
