Bonjour mes amis,
Joyeuse Noel

The first days of winter saw the country covered in a blanket of snow but the ice has since thawed. The cut trees are being placed in the street one by one, still in their dressings of tinsel.

I spent my first Christmas here in France and experienced their Revellion, a feast shared between family on the night of the 24th..champagne, oysters, foie gras, and salmon, and that was only the first course!

For a wander through the chalets of a Marche de Noel and a peek into the department store windows on Boulevard Haussmann read Christmas in Paris

Best wishes~
