Christmas in Paris

Through no planning of my own I ended up in Paris Dec 24 ! I had to be there for work, a last minute thing. I had the afternoon to stroll through the city but had no idea where best to go so I started sort of in the center at a shopping mall. Was a bit disappointed... it didn't look very Christmassy at all. The shops certainly didn't have lovely window displays like the ones I saw in London. I didn't feel like shopping and it was a lovely day so I just strolled along the streets and.... still barely noticed it was Christmas. Some restaurants decorated but not even all of them. I knew the Champs Elysees is always decorated nicely so I headed in that direction and there I came upon a wonderful Christmas market. Thank goodness !! It wasn't all that big but they had nice stuff, it was a lovely sunny day and I took lots of pictures. You can find them in my album !

Kerst - thank you for sharing that Christmas Eve experience with us! We never do know what is going to happen..... How wonderful that you were able to get to the Champs Elysees and find that wonderful Christmas market. Now it makes me curious to know more about how Christmas is celebrated in France.

I'm not sure ! It made me wonder too. As far as I know there are no French members here, are there ??
