Well, so far I have only done Printemps, but here it is. More soon.

Okay, here are the Galeries Lafayette windows, in my opinion not nearly as good as Printemps. The tree inside is always nice.

Thanks, K, for sharing again. Hopefully many of us will visit Paris in December, 2022.

Thanks for the GL video, Kerouac. I agree, Printemps windows are better this year. Still, they're magical compared to anything on offer where I live!

I was lucky enough to see them this year! My first time!! I totally agree with you Kerouac, Printemps absolutely blew Galeries Lafayette out of the water! I’d say London beats Paris for street lights, but Paris department store windows are so much more interactive and better than London’s!

Thanks everyone. I haven't even been to see the lights on the Champs Elysťes, but they haven't changed for 3 years, so I don't feel a need to see them again. Apparently the current red version has been sold to cities around the world, including Moscow.

Here are a couple of Champs Elysťes all lit up in red, so beautiful and festive!

I'm glad you took one for the team. I have to admit that I shudder every year when I see them beginning to install the lights in September. I have nothing against Christmas, but I just don't think that preparations should last so long.
