Dijon Dresses Up for the Holiday season

A year ago today, we were in Dijon, enjoying the frosty weather, all the sparkling holiday decorations, the Christmas market, and the activities around the ice rink on Place de la Liberation in front of the Ducal Palace.

It’s not possible for us to be there this year at this time, so we’ll re-live it with some photos. I wonder what sweet tinsel-y creatures they have put up this year in the Place de la Liberation? If anyone knows, please do let us know.
