It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

They say a picture says a thousand words.  So today, I’m going to rely on photos to show Paris and environs dressing up for the holidays.

Since the attacks in Nov. 2015, the decorations have been sparser.  Notre Dame no longer has a tree on the parvis.  Whereas once anywhere you turned, there would be a festive feeling, now it’s mostly the Champs Elysees and the Haute Couture streets.  Is it related? I don’t know but it can’t be coincidence.

  1. Sara,

    Things are looking up for the Oakland sports teams (except the Warriors). Press reports say the new A’s GM plans to keep team in Oakland and build a new ballpark. Former player Ronnie Lott is heading a group that wants to buy Raiders before owner Mark Davis moves them to Las Vegas.

    Let me know if you want timely news articles about this.

    Merry Christmas,
