Getting into the Christmas spirit!

The end of November already, hectic times here at the Abacaxi & Hortelã-house & change is on its way...
But the end of November also calls for getting into the Christmas spirit, don't you think?
So we headed one night to the Champs Elysées to see all the lights and visit the Christmas fair near the Place de la Concorde. Such a pity I couldn't capture it all in pictures, but I gave it a try:
Hotel de Invalides, such a remarkable building.
One of the restaurants went crazy...
The most beautiful Avenue of the world.
Also entertainment for the small ones.
Time to warm up: such a nice hot chocolate spoons in all kinds of flavors & preferrable combined with:
Don't they look good? And I can confirm: they taste good too!

This weekend will be dedicated to decorating the Christmas tree, hot chocolate and cookies ready? GO!

Have a wonderful, thankful weekend!

Hoi Chantal,

Parijs in oktober is mooi, maar Parijs rond de kerst nog veel mooier! Rond deze tijd ga ik ook graag naar Londen; Harrods, Liberty's, Fortnum & Mason....

Je foto's geven een goed beeld van hoe Parijs er nu uitziet. Gezellig al die lichtjes! Heerlijk om in zo'n stad te wonen. De zoete traktaties had ik ook niet kunnen weerstaan :-)!

Een fijn weekend!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Dearest Chantal,

Still Paris earns its status for being the city of lights; especially during the Christmas season!
There are lots of lovely cities during this time, like Singapore with all the tiny white lights in the tropical trees. Also Jakarta turns into a fairytale city.
Wish the weather would stay nice too in Paris and other parts where rain or snow can change the sight.

Have a great weekend!
