Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas!

Joyeux Noël!

Hi there, I hope you’re ready for the holiday season …

I wish you a wonderful time wherever you are, whatever you celebrate, and may all your dreams come true in 2011!

Well it’s still snowing in Paris, and it’s very, very cold – so if you’re there, make sure you put on plenty of warm clothes, wear thermal gloves & socks, and keep DRY!

In today’s newsletter, I want to tell you about a whole bunch of pages I’ve written about Paris over Christmas.  You can start with this page:

Christmas in Paris >>

Christmas in Paris - have a photo taken with Santa

and then follow the links to read all the fabulous things to do and see! Yes, many small businesses might be closed over Christmas, but there are still a ton of things to do in this fabulous city over Christmas.

PS – did you find time to have your photo taken with Santa before the final day on 22nd December? I hope so!

MAISON DU PERE NOEL – SANTA CLAUS HOUSE

Speaking of Santa, here’s a quick little video of Pere Noel’s House in Paris:

Here are a few more little treats I have for you today today, a couple of videos taken in Paris to put you in the mood of being in the City of Life & Love!

This video below shows the fabulous and free merry-go-round at L’Hotel de Ville (like City Hall):

A video taken on 18th December 2010, from an apartment in the XIV (14th arrondissement) – how brave the market stall owners are under those gazebos on a very VERY cold Paris evening!

Tribal beats

Wild and groovy music

25 different events have been held from 12th November 2010 right up to 24th December 2010

If you’re going to be in Paris at the end of the year, this is a wonderful selection of musicians sharing their music with the world.
