Enjoy your Christmas at Galeries Lafayette !

What would Christmas be without a Christmas tree! It's been a tradition at the Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann since 1976. Every winter, the Coupole welcomes its Christmas tree in majesty, which will make young and old dream. Every 30 minutes, the lights go out for a sound and light show in which the Christmas trees come to life, as if by magic... A moment out of time that immerses us in the world of planet Elato as it gets ready for Christmas.


The talented teams from Galeries Lafayette and Bournillat have produced a series of stunning animated window displays along Boulevard Haussmann to tell the thrilling tale of Nordmann, a Christmas tree from the planet Elato, and his trip to Earth at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann. Each of the 11 displays shows one of the stages in Nordmann’s adventures: from the spruce-up at Chris’cuts before leaving, to the journey to Earth in a magic spaceship, and a visit to the Noël Club. For both the young and the young at heart, the displays offer a captivating tour of a magical, cosmic universe.

Eighty years after partnering with Colette, Galeries Lafayette writes a new chapter in its history and reconnects with the literary world by asking French author Claire Castillon to pen an original Christmas fairy tale: Planet Christmas. Illustrated by Florent Chavouet, Planet Christmas tells the story of Nordmann, a Christmas tree from the planet Elato, who’s sent to Earth to save Christmas for a little girl called Annie.
