It's Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Christmas
I've been having a bit of a cultural mind melt the past few days. Paris is definitely all abuzz for Christmas -- lots of lights (a million I'm told on the Champs Élysées alone), decorations, Christmas trees, and Parisians carrying shopping bags. The only odd thing is the persistent soundtrack of American Christmas songs including White Christmas, The Christmas Song, and of course, Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer. Craziest of all was hearing some country singer twang away about the holidays. That Tennessee accent just didn't seem the right soundtrack for buying a bûche de noël. Happy holidays to all ya'll mes amis.
