This year we are sooooo excited to be spending Christmas in Paris! Paris has given us such a different Christmas vibe than London so I'm excited to hear your thoughts on it. Of course the entire city is covered in decor and Christmas lights, but I'm sharing just a few of my favorite things we have found. Unfortunately I couldn't get any good pictures of the Christmas lights in the streets (does any one else find this frustrating?! The picture just ends up like a big light bulb blob😐) but I will say.... The lights were amazing!!
Waiting for Santa. Hopefully he will find me this year😉
Christmas at the Notre Dame Cathedral
One of my favorite Christmas decorated places in Paris is Notre Dame! Of course they have a huge tree outside that is beautifully decorated. It was fun to go inside and sit in on one of the Christmas Mass Services. The inside of the Cathedral is absolutely beautiful and was a great way to get in on the religious side of Christmas!
Two of my favorite Christmas Tree locations! How cute is that big colorful tree?! Galleries Layfayette definitely has the best tree in the city. Every 30 minutes floating ornaments start dancing around the tree while Christmas music is played. (If you follow me on Instagram you saw the video!) The tree is 7 stories tall and made fully of metal and blown up balloons. My second favorite trees were at Place Vendome. The Place Vendome square has probably 20 different trees of all sizes. They are a classic green tree with lights and nothing more. I love the simplicity of them!
From my Christmas in London post you probably know that I like to walk around and see how the streets and businesses are decorated. This was no exception! We also stopped at the local crepe stands for a treat while walking around, a must-do in Paris!
The best for last! Obviously my favorite lights in Paris are the Eiffel Tower lights! Thankful that my camera could capture them. We stayed out late our second night to wait for the sparkley light show, that they do every hour after dark. It was one of the most magical things I have ever watched! Its so crazy to hear about these big monuments and see them on the internet... and then see them in real life! The Eiffel Tower is so much bigger and special than I had imagined!❤️
I hope everyone is having an amazing time celebrating this holiday season with your friends and families. This is such a special time of year to hold our loved ones close!❤️ Have an amazing week!
