Paris is the capital of France and it’s one of the best cities I’ve ever visited for the Christmas holidays. Along the streets, there are a lot of fairy lights and small Christmas trees. Everything is decorated with lights and baubles. Paris has a lot of Christmas spirit and everyone is very happy around this time. One of the best places that is completely decorated is the Arc de Triomphe – it’s brightly illuminated and on the streets around it the trees are full of lights and baubles. Sometimes in Paris it snows and everything is completely covered by the snow. It seems like Father Christmas’ house. At Christmas you can also eat a lot of food like turkey, Christmas cake and mince pies. I think Christmas time, not only in Paris but all around the world, is the best period for peoples’ morale, especially for children who believe in Father Christmas and receive a lot of big presents!

Christmas

For Christmas I would like all people to become better. On Christmas day everyone stays with their family and relatives to eat a lot and exchange presents. On Christmas day I normally stay in my house in Paris with my family and friends. I like Paris during this period because there are a lot of fairy lights, snow and Christmas spirit.
