Christmas In Paris

I was in Paris last year right before the Christmas holidays.  Paris at Christmas is probably my absolute most favorite 
time.  The city is beautiful at any time of the year 
but at Christmas, it is absolutely beautiful.  

I wish I was there now.  
Next year ... definitely.
The lights on the Champs Elysees are magical.  
At one end of this famous street is the Arc de Triomphe 
and at the other end,  La Place de la Concorde, 
with it's large ferris wheel.
And as always,  Laduree is as pretty on the outside 
as all their beautiful pastries on the inside.
All along the Champs Elysees is the outside Christmas 
market with lots of fun gifts but most importantly, 
gorgeous food and drink to sample up and 
down the boulevard.  Warm wine, beautiful French 
cheeses and lots of Christmas goodies are there 
to entice all the Parisian Christmas shoppers.
There was just a little bit of snow to add that cozy 
Christmas feeling.  Trees were being sold along 
St Germain des Pres, and although they were small 
in stature .... they were just the right size for a 
typical Parisian apartment.
Of course, all the bistros were regaled in Christmas finery.  This is one of Christian Constant's restaurants along rue 
St. Dominique in the 7th arrondissement.  
Fabulous food.
And of course, the Queen of Paris ... the Eiffel Tower.   
This special attraction makes every day in Paris
 seem like Christmas.
