Nov 25 - St Catherine's Day in Paris ... and what an assembly of pretty?
Nov 25 - St Catherine's Day in Paris ... and what an assembly of pretty girls. For the duration of this day they are the "Catherinettes" - girls who are 25 this year and still unmarried.
A "camel" joins in the carnival mood at the fashion house of Jacques Heim, one of the many who give their staff a merry St. Catherine's day-off.
Then the Catherinettes spread the gay atmosphere through the streets, for on this day they enjoy something like the freedom of the city.
St. Catherine is looking down from the corner of a building on those who keep prying for a husband. A kiss for a friendly policeman - and away they go.
