It really feels more like pre-christmas here than it ever did in Southern California. Somehow blue sky, palm trees and t-shirts never quite went with getting into a christmas mood, despite plenty of lights and Santa Clauses. Well, it might not get to snow in Toulouse either, but it is cold, and people wear coats. You can walk around on the street, look at elaborate window displays, go into warm stores. Feels sort of nostalgic, like old times when we lived in Denmark. I wonder where one gets christmas trees from here, although it is probably too early.

The 11th of December is definitely not too early for a christmas tree. We bought ours at a "Jardiland" store a bit outside town, but we have already spotted two places in the center where you can get your tree. Try the Boulevard D'Arcole close to Victor Hugo. Look out for the prices though, we paid 18 Euro for a tree that costs around 35 Euro in the center. Let us know if you guys need help getting the tree.

Thanks for sharing the decorated street over there, here its a bit cold (guess we are getting the world snowwind), with rain much during the wee nights, And am trying my best to get my home quickly painted, dinners are always a moments pleasure for us, and don't talk about presents under the tree allllllll waiting to open hehe*

Ho ho, thanks for that, Thomas! Yeah, I was wondering. In the U.S. one gets the tree a long time before christmas, to display it as decoration. But in my family in Denmark, the christmas tree wasn't even shown before christmas eve, having been decorated behind closed doors that afternoon, and it was picked up just the weekend before.
