It’s awesome! And this year there’s no bittersweetness because I do get to go home for the actual holiday. Anyway the lights are on all over town, le P?®re No?´l has set up shop in the middle of the Place D’Erlon (which was swarmed with people today), but most importantly the Christmas markets are open! I can’t wait till I get paid so I can go buy people presents. I’ll have to take some pictures at some point. I really think Christmas season in France is better than in the US. It almost makes up for not having Thanksgiving.
