It's beginning to look a lot like... Noel

Although it's not December yet, Paris is already dressing up for the holidays. As nighttime gets earlier each day, the glittering lights on the Champs Elysees make the mood on the street festive.

By day, there are some more old-fashioned Christmas displays to be seen. One of my favorites is the Boulangerie Julien, on rue St. Dominique. They completely resurface the exterior in log bark, with sleds and skis ornamenting the doorways and snow on the roof.

One yuletide fashion trend that escapes me, however, is the colored fake Christmas trees. Do I hear a chorus singing "O Faux Sapin"?
