Christmas In Paris I


Galerie Vivienne is a beautiful place to shop anytime, but at Christmas, it's lit to the hilt!  This covered passageway has a wonderful assortment of shops and places to dine or have a cup of thé.  Located near the Palais Royal, you may take the Palais-Royal or Bourse métro.

This is a beautiful scene and it is so different with the lights of the season. I think that every little shop and boutique has a special sparkle for the holidays.

This is a great time of year to be in Paris. Too bad it has to be cold.

Thank you Virginia
Oh how I wish I was back there this Christmas!!
I actually search your blog and brought up "Christmas in Paris" and I opened one of your earlier Christmas posts and "Oh Holy Night" is playing - tears are rolling down my cheeks - wishing I was with my beautiful family in France again.....
