Christmas Time in Paris ~ Champs Elysees

IMG_4354

I cannot begin to describe the feeling in Paris at the start of the christmas season. The buildings are lit up with lights, red and green, silver and gold, and wrapped in bows. Ok, not all of them…but the famous boulevard Champs Elysees is pretty spectacular with its famous shops, chic bistros and light decorations. This weekend I strolled this famous boulevard as musicians played christmas music in the street and I drank cups of hot wine (vin chaud). The whole street turns into a Christmas festival with different booths selling all kinds of food and potential christmas presents!

The Champs Elysees Boulevard runs from the famous Arc de Triomphe (pictured above) to the Jardin des Tuleries.

Come walk the Boulevard Champs Elysees avec moi 🙂

And we end in the beautiful Tuleries Gardens…

A day full of festivity and Christmas cheer. We have not seen snow fall yet this year in Paris… however, the air is crisp and there is a chill. Coats, furs, scarves, gloves, boots and hot chocolate are present. I love the seasons and I feel Paris is a city that deeply experiences the beauty of seasonality.

I am off to sip hot chocolate and watch Parisian life go by on this calm Sunday… Busy days ahead as I will head to Bordeaux for three days of intense winery visits and tastings. I will go back to Saint Emilion, however most of the trip will focus on the other regions including Pauillac, Medoc, and Margaux…. and we will stay in a beautiful hotel near the famous Chateau Margaux. If it is anything like our stay and experience in Champagne, I am in for a fabulous time!

Happy holiday season everyone. Blessings to all.
