Paris Department Store Christmas Displays They Are a Changing...

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/23/wo...lays.html?_r=0

Hugely popular with locals and tourists mobs of folks flock to Paris' major department stores to ogle the store windows as described in today's NYtimes article.

I've seen Au Primtemps and Galeries Lafayette but did not realize Bon Marche also had them and actually was the first to do so, way back in the 1800s - just after Macy's in New York began the tradition.

Oh, so many people make the mistake of trying to film the store windows in daylight. Far too many reflections! So I guess I will have to provide my own versions instead.

I can also give a link to the Bon Marché windows, which are pitiful in comparison.
