Paris offers countless fun things to do during the holiday season, both indoors and outdoors. There are a few traditions, similar in that sense to what we have at home, that are must-dos in the city during the winter holidays. Such as? Well, enjoying a hot chocolate at Angelina's is one, the thick rich chocolate in a fine china cup is unequalled and if you enjoy it after your ice skating outing at the Hôtel de Ville, or a chilly walk through the Tuileries, then even better.
For those glamorous - or intimate- holiday soirées, you'll want to look your best. For that, schedule an appointment at the luxurious Christophe Robin salon at Le Meurice. He is the hair colorist to the stars and will have you looking ravishing in no time.
One of the most magical experiences you can have, whether you are Catholic or not, is attending the midnight mass at the Cathédrale de Notre Dame de Paris on Christmas Eve. The smell of incense will immediately envelope you as you prepare to hear Holy Mass in a church over 800 years old.
Group activities are another highlight of the holiday season. A few bonding activities during which the time will fly by are perfume making at the Guerlain Institute on the Champs-Elysées, an hour and a half spent playing the “live escape game” Hint Hunt, and/or spending an afternoon learning from one of France's top pastry makers at the Michalak Masterclass.
