Merry Christmas

Like last year, here are some pictures of the seasons windows decorations. They are a lot less attractive compared to last year's. Due to financial crisis? For consolation, I added a nice version of my 2 favorite xmas songs.

At Galeries Lafayette, there was no special theme this time,
just random windows with dressed up teddy bears etc...
There were 2 windows that had sort of a common theme on musicals.

Printemps have nicer displays because they have, at least, a color value.

However, I don't see how the contents are related to Christmas...
Okay... I guess it's a pink Christmas dinner feast.

Isn't this more Halloween than Christams?
With the flying white sheet ghosts? O_O

 And what's this one? Hand sewn puppets dancing and playing piano...
How creative...

Sadaharu Aoki - Round 2

It's been a hard week... So I deserve a treat!
Around Opera's area, Christmas season is definitely here, with all the twinkling lightings but also all the Christmas shopping people, the parents bringing the kids to see the animated window displays, plus the usual tourist crowd.
It was a battle to get through the crowd to enter Lafayette Gourmet.

This time, I fell for the Saya for its color and the tiny macarons on the side. It's a strawberry mousse with a pistachio heart. I'm not a strawberry fan so I don't have much impression to share here. Let's just say that this Saya didn't impress me a lot. It's mostly beautiful for the eyes so I'll just let you see for yourself.
