Christmas is one of my favorite periods in Paris. The whole city is decorated with lights, locals are searching for the best champagne to start their Christmas dinner and tourists are going from shop to shop to find the perfect Christmas gifts. Through the whole city you can find several Christmas markets, where you can drink ‘vin chaud’ (warm wine along with various spices). However a must see in these weeks before Christmas are the window displays from the big departement stores at boulevard Haussmann; Printemps and Galeries Lafayette. And don’t forget to go inside to see the magnificent stained-glass dome from over a century old, specially for Christmas. With the Christmas tree it’s even more impressive to see all the colors and gives you the real Christmas feeling.
