Christmas market


We are still on the Champs Elysées today where for the second year we have a Christmas market going on both sides from the Champs Elyséees roundabout to the Place de la Concorde. This Christmas market tradition originated in the Alsace region, east of France where they are still the best to see if you have the chance to visit this beautifull part of the country. But I must say that this one on the Champs Elysées is very nice and it gives life to this part of the avenue where there is no shops.
As I am talking about the Champs Elysées roundabout where this market starts, here is a picture of the way this place is decorated for Christmas :

The bottom photo is just fabulous! How did they do it? Is there a wire grid holding the lights? This is really clever.

I"m puzzled as to where this fountain is. Looks like the Place de la Concord but it's not the fancy fountains I remember. Well I'm sure there are lots of things I don't remember. Your photos are grand Laurent!!

The Christmas market was fun down the Champs Elysées. We enjoyed the warm spiced wine very much!
