Joyeux No "L"


It's today! When this photo shows up on PDP, I'll be unwrapping my presents, feeling sorry for having eaten too much and not looking forward for more food tomorrow! But every year it's the same and I'm actually happy it is. So let me wish you all a merry Christmas. FYI, I took this photo in one of the windows of Le Bazar de l'hôtel de ville (BHV).

  14. It is hard to believe all the people I have met because of Paris Daily Photo. I started viewing it in late 2005. In May 2006 I actually met Eric and Michael and Arnaud and, I think, Thib, and some other people. In 2008 I think half of Paris showed up for the PDP picnic as well as people from all over the world. Some of them are still willing to talk to me! In 2009 we moved from the Seine to Canal St. Martin. What is next?

    Thank you to Eric for expanding my circle of friends, and my world.

    Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel.

  15. Happy Christmas Eric and thank you for PDP and of course for CDP. Through you I've met several bloggers, nearly all of them CDP bloggers: Nathalie, Fabrizio, Peter, Richard, Chuckeroon and Monsieur Benaut, and Catherine - have made even more blogger friends online and even have a new job - via my photography - wherein I write articles and supply pics for a new Cote d'Azur website - and get paid! All thanks to YOU!

    Joyeux Noel, cher Eric.

  16. Joyeux Noel, Eric, et bisoux from me too. PDP is like a present from Paris that I get to open every day! Thanks for sharing your beautiful city with us, and for getting me started on my own blogging adventure. Wish I'd made it to the pique-nique, but at least I got to meet you here in NYC!
    Oh, and love this post from the BHV (my favorite, la quincaillerie)!

  19. Happy Holidays to all.

    PS I saw that Le Clique is here in LHR! Is it better to see it here where it would be in English, or does it not matter, Eric?

  20. Well you always tell me something I didn't know and today I finally learn what BHV stands for.

    Joyeux Noël Eric to you and your family. I'm glad you are able to spend time with them.

    I so enjoyed meeting you last summer and look forward to seeing you again in just a few weeks. Like jilly, whom I"ve not met in person but chatted with on the phone many times while in France, I've made some wonderful friendships through CDP. Merci!!!

  23. One of the gifts that I got is a book about Veuve Clicquot!!
    I am very interested in knowing how this woman managed to become THE reference in champagne.

    She's another great french figure, I'm sure I'll enjoy the book!

  26. Merry Christmas to all the PDPers, and to Eric, thank you for your gift of a daily glimpse of Paris. Did anyone else get the Paris Quiz Book from Santa? I thought I knew Paris, but so far I am failing the quiz miserably.

    A Very Merry Christmas to you and all the other PDPers everywhere.

  32. I did not go to midnight Mass this year. I watched Mass on this station http://www.catholictv.com/shows/default.aspx?seriesID=57

    I love this Christmas song. They have been playing on the Christmas music station. I think it is my favorite to date. Every year I get a new favorite. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcqDS-g7lUQ

  35. Thank you mrs Vandertramp. These questions are uneasy to me, I must say!!!
    Without any help, I would have done miserably too but it's fun! Well, now I can say I'm with Carry ;-) I think she made a great game!
    Paris is my favorite city but I still don't know her very well... :)

  36. Carrie--You are good! The 3rd is C. The 2nd is a trick question--all three are correct. 5th is A. 7th is A. That one surprised me.
