Christmas...


Christmas decorations abound in the centre of the city. There are the obvious lit garlands above the main street itself which look glorious at night time but I do like this practice of putting displays outside shops on the side streets. The red is very cheerful and you get a lovely Christmassy feeling without having to crane your neck. Though I wasn't able to capture the whole scene, pesky shoppers getting in the way, you can imagine how nice the whole road looked with the same festive display repeated outside each shop. Very tasteful. Well played, ville de Nice

Lovely and tasteful. We lack that most of the time here. You just get immune to it all.

Hi Angela! With a 48h day I would have time to enjoy your blog more often; shame on the time controller… ;))
It seems the crisis isn't affecting the businesses that much; at least from what we see on the shops' windows... ;)
Loved to see the blues: sky, sea and chairs!!
And the Negresco looks always great!!
Meanwhile Blogtrotter is departing Tunisia 2007, but managed to keep the delay in posting on twelve (12) months only. Great achievement… ;))
Enjoy and have a great weekend!

May I add that my children and grandchildren called my sweet momma, GiGI! She would have loved this store. She had a lot of style. Merci.
