Europeans overdose on the Christmas spirit and I love it. The Christmas Markets in Paris are delightfully festive all over town. My favourite was the the Marche de Noel du Mail Branly, underneath the Eiffel Tower. Such a gorgeous sight! We left Australia on Christmas Day but I didn’t miss out on any festivities because Europe clings on to the Christmas season and carries it all the way to mid-January. In Australia the Christmas period ends so abruptly as we switch to New Years, and then back to school, etc. Before you know it, it’s Australia Day and then it’s Easter. It’s really nice to have the Christmas magic linger a little longer.
