December 2008 - Celebrating Christmas at Galeries Lafayette

Galeries LafayetteIn this month's Paris Insights, we explore the grand department store Galeries Lafayette. Its animated window displays are a delight for children and adults alike. And the giant Christmas tree standing under the cupola is a marvel to behold!

What would Christmas be without the display of manger scenes in the naves of Paris' old churches? In our feature Paris, Past and Present, we report on the crèches that we found at Notre-Dame Cathedral and at Saint-Sulpice Church.
