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.
And of course, the Queen of Paris ... the Eiffel Tower.
This special attraction makes every day in Paris
seem like Christmas.
