This year, the Galeries Lafayette has chosen Alice in Wonderland as the theme for their window display. Puppets, a forest of magical mushrooms, a white rabbit, the mirror and much more. They have a 20 metre tree decorated with 1,800 balls and also a 30-voice choir singing traditional Christmas carols.
Meanwhile, the Printemps Haussmann presents the work of Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel) who gives his interpretation of the cosmic dream. Articulated puppet “La Marionnette Coco” inhabits the window in a fairy world of unexpected plants and flowers.
And the Forum des Halles will feature a d閏or entirely in pink called “Fr閚閟ie Rose” (Pink Frenzy).
Another major feature of Noel ?Paris of course are the many colourful markets found across the city. Most of the markets are open every day until Christmas and some into the New Year:
