Holidays in Paris
Parisians work hard but they also love their holidays. August (starting the first full weekend) is the time when most desert the city for the seaside and there’s a fairly substantial exodus again for a few days anytime from February to March for Alpine skiing. The city is magical at Christmas time as there are lights everywhere and many decorations have that certain French ‘touch’ that means they’re charming without being loud and vulgar. New Year’s Eve can be loud and boisterous in public places but perhaps less so than in some cities. Bastille Day is surprisingly low-key apart from the huge central military and fireworks displays but fairs and picnics are commonplace. Most other public holidays are generally celebrated quietly with family and close friends.
