Paris lights up for the holidays

I went to see the lights get switched on at the Champs Elysées this year. First time I have done this.
The city has updated their holiday light display and has put in place super ecological lights that are saving much more energy than they used to.
Diane Kruger was the invited celebrity to come flip the switch to light up 200 trees with around 1.5 million lights on about 10 kilometers of LED light strings spread out over 2.5 kilometers of prime Paris real estate.
The lights will be lit every night from 5pm to 2am until January 10th.

I then went wandering around the central part of Paris, and gathered some holiday cheer for you all in the form of photos….
Enjoy!
