Kerouac, I'm not celebrating X-mas this year so I'll print your photos and put them on my refrigerator. That'll cheer me up a bit. Thank you.

I agree with Traviata, it all looks better than ever! I’ve only been at Christmas time once, in 2016, and while we loved everything we saw even my husband said “wow!” when I just showed him the GL tree photo. Thanks, Kerouac, your photos are fabulous!

I will freely admit that it is a major consolation that the department stores have continued their tradition as though everything is normal in the world. Obviously, Galeries Lafayette was not as crowded as usual when I walked through it yesterday, and most of the entrances are closed since they need to count how many people are going in and out, but visually it remains spectacular.

Those photos of the Galleries Lafayettes are spectacular, Kerouac.

Thanks for being our official Paris photographer.

I just could not walk out on the overhang. There was a long line anyway but thanks for doing it for us.

The waiting time is never more than about 10 minutes.

I have a vague project of visiting the Champs Elysťes, but since I already saw this "red" version last year, if I miss it, it won't be a tragedy.

Maybe this year it isn't long but there were many selfie-takers 2 years ago with long poles. I think they were all trying for that perfect shot of themselves. But, they also buy a lot from the high end stores and I am sure the GL misses their money.

I would classify the abusers I saw this year (perhaps unfairly) as "Instagram girls". They needed photos with masks and then without masks in various configurations since there was always the person taking the photo missing from the group. (They didn't dare ask anybody else and that was probably a wise move if they didn't want to be tossed over the side.) The platform attendant made it very clear that their time had expired, and they finally obeyed him.

I might take a few photos tomorrow when I go out to celebrate our next session that does not require documentation. I am no longer naive enough to think that lockdown will not happen again, though. But since I will be going out during the day, I doubt that I will encounter any "Christmas magic."
