Shops and restaurants actually close in Luxembourg. I will miss that. Shops close at 8 during the week and 6 on Saturday. On Sunday all stores are closed, with the exception of a few grocery stores that open until 1:00. It is so humane, so respectful of time. There isn't any "Open 24 hours a day" craziness that exists in the States. No one really needs a Big Mac at midnight. We would all survive just fine without a 24 hour grocery store. Shopping on Sunday? There are better things to do! America offers us too much time to buy stuff we don't need and eat things we don't need. I am in full support of the environmental controls of shop hours. Sundays are quiet in Lux. Sure we all complained about it at first but then we adjusted and then we started relaxing on Sundays. It was nice. I will miss that.
