Embrace the sparkle, people

Parisians are all about being subtle, tasteful and elegant.  They look disdainfully at the vulgar foreigners who could never possibly rise to their level of sophistication.   They don't give in to things that are fun and bright and sparkly on a daily basis, but maybe they should, because I've just realized that all that self-restraint just completely cracks  at Christmas.  I was just trawling back through some of my photos and I present you with the evidence...

Pretty, yes.  Subtle, no.

Only the French would have Xmas lights that look like chandeliers.

Not at all vulgar or over the top - noooo, not at all...

I don't get the snowy palm trees.  I like 'em, I just don't get 'em.

Think ya got enough lights here, buddy? And wtf with the palm trees??

Really not sure that the French quite grasp the concept of reindeer...
