The entire Orange live blog team is delighted to welcome you into 2012 and offers you its very best wishes: may this New Year bring your wildest dreams to fruition!
But let’s prolong the Christmas spirit with a Strasbourg slideshow, a kind of virtual tour of the capital at Christmas where I spent a few days of my vacation.
The city has earned its “slideshow” moniker. Illuminated from the first signs of twilight, it is adorned with a multitude of decorations plunging visitors into the fairyland of a traditional Christmas. Shopkeepers join in the spirit of the Christmas parade, decorating storefronts and windows with their finest ornaments. Wherever you look, you’re simply awed by the masses of twinkling, enchanting lights that leave you feeling… great.
From the cathedral square, to little France, to Place Broglie, to the city’s central square Place Kléber, experience its warm and festive atmosphere through these few slides.
