Just around the corner from us in Paris
is rue de Lourmel
which like every other street in Paris,
loves to dress up for Christmas.
Even the butcher gets in on the fun.
But my favorites are always the patisseries
who can make anything out of meringue.
If I could, I'd buy one of these little Santa Meringues for every one of my friends
and send them with a Ho Ho note granting their every wish for Christmas.
Though he might not show up in your mailbox,
consider the wish complete.
