My Fondest French Christmas Memory: Abby

“My most fond Christmas memory in France was visiting the Strasbourg Christmas market. I had been to Strasbourg before, but never during the Christmas season.

My friend and I decided to do it just as a day trip from Paris (2h20 each way on the TGV). It was a long, cold day, but so much fun!

It started to snow mid-day but we kept going – all bundled up and eating warm pretzels and drinking hot mulled wine (vin chaud) every chance we got to keep warm!”
