Oh how i love thinking about my travels of far gone days. . . . and I love it when bloggers remind me how wonderful some cities are. Paris over the Christmas period is absolutely the most beautiful thing to see. I loved every step I took along the streets, and i walked most of them, not to miss anything. Have you a favorite photo of a special place during this time of the year? I see the site wouldnt upload my photo as well as a link - why is that?
It always surprises me when people come into a warm cafe and bring the cold in with them. A woman has just done it: her cheeks are flushed and as she passed...

The link is here, too bad about the picture. The only major city I've been to at Christmas is San Diego when I lived there. It was okay. I lived on Guam during Christmas and the decorations there are nice. It's unusual to see Christmas decorations without snow.

There is a small town near here, where every house is always decorated for Christmas it's pretty cool.

I have been to Paris in the fall several times, but never during the Christmas season. I bet it is wonderful!

A tradition in our family was always to go to New York City to see the big tree at Rockefellar Center and of course the big Christmas show at Radio City. Being in NY at holiday time wonderful with all the lights and stores are all decorated too.

Santa Claus Village - Rovaniemi, Finland
I remember a magic Christmas in Rovaniemi (Finland), when my niece was still a little kid. She was excited to be at Santa Claus village.

Well i hope you get there - I took me 50 years before i went for the first time, and now i have been twice. Just a walk down the fashion house lane is mind boggling

I guess the closest I've been to Paris for Christmas is New Orleans. Pretty impressive in itself, but not Paris I'm afraid.

My favorite place during Wintertime is closer to my home than Paris France, it is in NY in the Catskill Mountains; however my bank book does not have enough in there to travel that distance at this time so mum and I will enjoy Winter best we can, here
