I suppose it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. I made this silly little video of the Christmas lights on the Champs-Élysées on Saturday night. I guess I did it as an excuse to play this Frank Sinatra rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas“.
Hopefully next weekend I will have a chance to do another meaningless video of Christmas decorations in Madrid. I think Madrid’s mayor, Ruiz Gallardón, is trying to convert Madrid into a city known for its Christmas “look and feel”. As a matter of fact, Madrid’s holiday lights are actually much more attractive this year than those in Paris. Of course, if Spain is far from complying with Kyoto, I seriouly doubt that the extra electicity needed to light up the town for the holly jolly season is going to help.
