In keeping with tradition, the facades of Parisian department stores (Printemps HaussmannGaleries LafayetteBHV MARAIS) are adorned with the most stunning festive decorations. As well as street lights and decorations around the city, department store windows are filled with Christmas trees, darting fireflies and gift-wrapped parcels.

Shop windows also put on a show with amazing theatre sets featuring animated figures and magical decor in an interactive world … great fun to watch! Enchanting universes, devised and created by gifted artists and designers, are still a source of wonder for both children and grown-ups.
