A Christmas Tree like no other...
The Galeries Lafayette’s Christmas tree tradition
The Christmas celebrations started in 1920 with the annual internal Christmas party. The employees were invited, with their children, to come and enjoy an on-stage show and admire the Christmas tree, both of which were placed just in front of the stately staircase, under the beautiful dome.
From there on, the Galeries Lafayette would dress up for the holiday season, looking dazzling inside out. And what once was an intimate Christmas party became one of the most visited spots in Paris. Every year, one can discover an ever so exuberant sparkling tree hanging from the glittering Art Nouveau dome.
