My favorites Christmas markets of Paris !!!

Well Paris is always Paris, and  I can never be tired of writing about it, even if now I am a bit away in the Morbihan 56 of Bretagne! I like to give you a glimpse of my favorite marché de Noël or Christmas market while working in the City and living in Versailles for 9 years. These were my favorites, one year or the other or sometimes in combination ; and of course in my black and white series, no pictures, Hope you enjoy the post as I.

Every year, many Christmas markets are set up in Paris to the delight of young and old alike. French craftsmen but also sometimes from abroad invest charming chalets and offer visitors the product of their work. Richly decorated, these small winter villages compete in inventiveness and multiply the attractions: sale of Christmas trees, merry-go-rounds, meetings with Santa Claus, tastings of culinary specialties, creative workshops, ice rinks, shows etc, You will find, among others, the illuminations of the Champs-Elysées , But every corner of the city will not fail to surprise you! Indeed you will find many Christmas decorations and illuminations in Paris, on Place Vendôme, Place de la Concorde, on Avenue Montaigne, or in the streets of Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
