Pre-Xmas weirdness partying festivaganza

It*s almost the time for Xmas celebrations again; and I am freezing my ass off in the streets of Paris, trying to do my shopping for those special days of consumer terror.
The last days were quite eventful (that*s the least one could say) with partying and drinking with good friends, meeting new people and learning something new every day. (Like the fact that the Jewish Pletzl in the Marais is the place to go if you wanna hear some brass band performing Christmas music...)

Looks like natural hair? Dead animal?
Model line-up?
New sunglasses dear?
party crew
Not drunk! Not drunk at all! No!
(Don*t worry Dave, a good pic of you should follow up soon)

Also I will be leaving for Luxembourg soon (Saturday) to see the family and the animals. And to hopefully celebrate a white Christmas for once. The last few days were extremely cold here in Paris, and every day I wake up and hope for a whitened street when I step outside. But nothing yet... you rather find other weird stuff in the streets of Paris these days.

Looking for last minute Christmas presents?
Then take a look at what comes for free on the average Paris street corner:

This doll scared me soo much on my way back home! It looked at me in a dark empty corner of rue Quincampoix. I had to take a pic for dearest Elodie!
Oh if you want to refurnish your entire apartment, there is a complete interior waiting for you in rue Vieille du Temple! Hurry up!A door! What a great Xmas Present that would make!
Who has never dreamed of assembling his own kitchen? This 200 piece puzzle comes completely free! DIY!

Otherwise if you really really have to go spend your hard earned money for Xmas gifts, I hardly recommend you to wait till the very last moment, and, for example, go shop this coming saturday afternoon at the Galleries Lafayette! Just to experience the joy of being stuck in people:

This could be you:
In the middle of this
sooo much fun!

    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...
