The shopping is done, the tree is lit and the day is finally here. Christmas in Paris is many things—window displays at the grands magasins, seeing a smile on a young child’s face, a sumptuous table, oysters on Christmas Eve, many twinkling lights. But in the end, whether you are celebrating here or anywhere else, it’s about family around a table, or around the tree, being thankful that we all have had one more year together, and feeling grateful that we are happy and healthy enough to celebrate.
No matter what you celebrate, we at Girls’ Guide to Paris wish you a happy and healthy holiday and a stupendous New Year!
