The two great and world known shops; Galeries Lafayette and Printemps Haussmann are particularly impressive. Their entire front is covered by thousands of lights in beautiful patterns and colours. But it's not only the impressive light decorations that's worth seeing. The window decorations are one of a kind and especially the children can spend long time in front of them.

This year the theme in Galaries Lafayette is Alice in Wonderland. See Alice explore Wonderland, the great table with the while rabbit, a forest made out of mushrooms, the evil queen and a field with magic flowers and many other known scenes from the story. On top of this there's a 20 metre tall Christmas tree beautifully decorated with 1800 glass balls and many other things.
