Christmas traditions

The largest Christmas tree in the world

Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann Christmas tree

This is an essential tradition at Galeries Lafayette. Every year, as Christmas approaches, our stunning Giant Christmas Tree takes over the Coupole store at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann. This year, as part of The Christmas Voyage theme, it is adorned with influences from around the world and tells the tale of the final stages of Céleste’s odyssey. Thousands of presents, magical nods to the lands visited, perch on the end of its snow-tipped branches, as well as colourful pompoms and embroidered Christmas baubles. Around it, twirl a festive array of twinkling paper lanterns and Céleste’s aeroplane. Every 30 minutes, the lights in the Coupole store go out to make way for a sound and light show.

The sparkling Christmas baubles adorning the Giant Christmas Tree are available in the Christmas Shop on the 1st floor of the Home store. Everyone can take a part of their magical journey at Galeries Lafayette home with them.

Christmas window displays

Christmas Window Displays at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann

Designed in the style of a traveller’s tale, the Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann window displays unveil a magical universe. Each of the eleven scenes depict a stage in Céleste’s voyage around the world. From the polar Christmas village to the enchanted forest, via a stop off in 1001 nights and the festival of lights, we meet fantastical characters and enchanted creatures. The final scene shows Céleste returning to Paris, surrounded by all of her friends, to celebrate Christmas Eve on the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette.
