Paris Christmas Overview

Though Christmas is a Christian holiday, it has taken on a much more universal and magical meaning on the global calendar thanks to images of Santa Claus, carolers, winter wonderlands, and scrumptious meals.

In many cities, the weather outside is pretty frightful during the Christmas season. Such is usually case in Paris, where families everywhere from the Champs-Élysées to Marais gather to exchange gifts, sing classic Xmas tunes, and drink a whole lot of spiked eggnog.

In addition to family time, the Xmas season in Paris means a potpourri of fantastic Christmas events for kids from one to 92. One yuletide pastime is Christmas lights along the magical avenue des Champs Élysées. Children and adults both crowd around shop windows to look at toys, diamonds, and other Christmas gifts that shine wonderfully under the twinkle of holiday illumination.

Christmas activities pop up all around Pairs at locations like place de l'Hôtel de ville. There, attendees enjoy an open-air ice rink that allows them to feel the season in romantic fashion as they glide from end to end of the frozen space. In true Xmas fashion, the ice rink is free and open to the public.

Parisians who aren’t big on family or romance can party the elf out of the season at a variety of Christmas clubs, bars, lounges, and pubs. There, even the Scroogeiest of Ebenezers can catch a buzz, break it down on the dance floor, and feel his cold heart melt ever so slightly.

Whether you’re on the naughty or nice list come December, there’s no better place to improve or maintain your standing with Santa than Christmas in Paris in 2018!
