There is not much that can beat visiting Paris in December! The city is all lit up with beautiful Christmas decorations and the grand magasins have their windows full of incredible displays. My favorite windows this year were at Le Bon Marche, but Galeries Lafayette never fails to astonish me. I stopped for lunch in one of the many restaurants in GL and watched as the midafternoon sun dimmed to allow the brilliant Christmas lights come alive. Glass of wine, potage and a salad while watching the hustle and bustle of Christmas shoppers illuminated by the ever changing display of lights.
