Champs-Elysées Lights Up

Ferris Wheel at Place de la Concorde in Christmas holidays Champs ElyseesThe plans for the actress Melanié Laurent to light up the Champs-Elysées at 6 p.m., November 22, 2010, was on “French Time”. They threw the switch at 6:20 p.m.

After rushing out of the metro stop, Clemenceau, thinking that I had missed it all, in a blink of an eye, the dark trees began dripping their energy-efficient drops of light through the leaves.

The lights cost about one million euros and are financed by the merchants, commercial sponsors and the city of Paris. The city, having its own financial difficulties, reduced its share this year.

The Holiday lights on the Champs-Elysées are lighting the 2.2 kilometer avenue and 415 trees.
