Christmas puppets at the Printemps

Christmastime in Pairs... light s on the Champs Elysées, sort-of Christmas markets selling all the same stuff, a little bit of decor at some selected places, the Eiffel Tower, our ever-sparkling 365-days-a-year Christmas tree, and of course, the wonderful window displays at the department stores!
My favorites are always at the Printemps, where hundreds of puppets regularly take the stage for this time of year to sing songs and do other puppet-related stuff, to the greatest joy of the children, pressing their red noses against the shiny windows.

There are also "grown up dolls" for the men (eh, something for everyone)The Printemps de la Mode building, built in 1907 is being renovated, the south-east tower has been recently unveiled, with its incredibly beautiful facades and the stained glass name display

This year*s theme is a nordic winter Christmas

singing reindeer?

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
