Aaaah, the crisp air, the memory of summer long gone, thoughts of Christmas and December in Paris …

This is one of my favourite seasons in Paris, when strangers share goodwill and the warmth of everyone is tangible in their smiles and good wishes.

Make sure you’re one of those people who says Merry Christmas and Joyeux Noel to people you pass in the street – go on, spread the cheer, tell someone they look fabulous, make someone’s day :-)

Bars in Paris

The Ice Kube Bar

Have a look at this video about the bar made out of ICE in Paris – very cool!  … pardon the pun :-)  The video is in French but you’ll get the feel for the place, and hopefully you’ll get to visit it too. Coats, hats and scarves! brrrrrrrr –  I haven’t visited yet, but it is defintely on my list!

===================

That’s it for the moment – please do let me know if you have any questions – if you do, you can be sure there’ll be someone else who’d love to know the answer and I can post it on the site to help others. Hope you have a fantastic month ahead, and may the Yuletide season find you and your family healthy and happy. Ciao for now!

Teena!
