Christmas Market on the Champs Elysées

This year, they finally came up with a good idea for the winter celebrations by putting a big Christmas market on the Champs Elysées Gardens. between Place de la Concorde and the Rond Point des Champs Elysées.
Some 90 little wooden huts were built by craftsmen from the north out of polish fir trees. The huts are filled with crafts and foods from all over Europe to symbolize the French presidency of the European Union. The scent of waffles and candy and caramel apples is in the air, now all that's needed is Christmas music instead of the never ending traffic noise of the busy avenue that separates both sides of the market.

    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...
