The Lights Are Going Up

I saw the first strings of street lights on October 30th.

I like how they stay up late in Paris, well into mid-January, but I’m not in a rush for Christmas decorations in the fall. Unlike Louisa May Alcott’s Jo March and many other people, I love November and prefer to enjoy this season from beginning to end before putting my antlers on.

I was quite enchanted by seeing the magic happen one recent night on rue Mouffetard, though.

  1. My rule has always been “not till after my birthday” (early December), although it had to be bent this year since the choir I joined is doing some carol singing (last week and next week), so I’ve been singing Christmas songs since september!
