awesome and free! ... if you could resist... Oct 20, 2007
When my grandmother went to Paris a few years ago with her brother, she came back raving about the amazing window displays throughout the city. I didn't pay much attention to her because honestly, how amazing could window displays be? You're in the "City of Lights" and you're spending your time looking at shop windows?

Well, the shop window displays are pretty amazing. I noticed myself stopping every now and then and just staring at what was in the windows. They are so tantalizing! You don't even notice that the window is set up beautifully at first, you just notice how great everything looks. At first I was a little embarrassed about stopping and staring into windows. I couldn't help myself! Then I noticed Parisian women doing the same thing. Even men and children! No wonder the phrase in French for window-shopping is "faire du leche vitrine" or "to lick the windows." Once I got over the embarrassment, it was quite enjoyable looking at all the windows as we walked through Paris. And best of all, it was free! (well, if you could resist going into the store...)
