There is nothing better to do to get yourself in the Christmas mood in Paris than to walk down the Christmas markets of the Champs Elysees. Starting mid-November the entire street is transformed into a miniature Christmas village with Christmas music playing on speakers and hundreds of little white huts full of delicious French holiday treats and gifts. To top it all off, at the end of the Market on Place de la Concorde is a massive ferris wheel that all the Parisian children beg their parents to take them to over Christmas break.
One of the staples of the market is it’s “vin chaud” or spiced, hot wine. It is absolutely divine and completely warms the soul! I need to get the recipe asap…I’ve been back 3 times already and I’m sure I’ll be returning again soon to get myself in the Christmas spirit! Only 26 more days….
