Paris During Christmas Time

There’s something about the Christmas season that elevates the magical ambience of Paris. Its cold weather, lights and decoration turn the city into a Christmas wonderland.

Many districts are decorated differently and have their own distinguished Christmas vibe. Such are the old streets of the Marais, the fabulous square of Place Vendôme and the mini-Christmas market at the Saint Germain quarter.

Yet if you want to indulge yourself in the traditional Parisian Christmas rituals, then you have to walk by the display windows of the Galeries Lafayette and Printemps department stores on Boulevard Haussmann. This is the place to be for Parisians who go to lay their eyes on magical and innovative recreations of fashion, music and all forms of arts, imagined by international designers. Anything from robots, to interactive touch screens and dancing mannequins is what you could expect.

As for the touristic, but equally beautiful part, you have the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. The infamous avenue starts off with a ferris wheel at the center of Place de la Concorde, followed by a symmetrical beauty of illuminated trees and columns stretching out to the Arc de Triomphe.

And of course, if you happen to have a day off, Disneyland Paris offers you an out of this world magical experience, making your Christmas an unforgettable holiday.
