Christmas windows of Boulevard Haussmann 2017

I got to it a little late this year, but here is a glimpse of the Christmas windows in Paris:

Are they still on display after Christmas (say until Jan 6?) I will be in Paris the first week of January and would love to see in 'real life'!

Your videos are very funny & charming.

Thank for posting these! We will be there in just under two weeks and now I'm really looking forward to seeing the windows and all the decorations.

CharlotteK, I looked it up, and the Printemps windows will be on display until January 10th. Unfortunately, Galeries Lafayette will only have its windows until December 30th.

Those in Paris during the Holidays might also find it interesting to walk through Place Vendôme which has also been decorated for the season.

Thanks for posting. We almost made it to Paris this Christmas season but it was not to be.

Your videos made me happy...the music fit perfectly.

Thanks for all of your comments. Every year I myself wonder what they will come up with next. If I worked for the decorating company, I would already know because these displays are planned more than a year in advance.
