“My most fond Christmas memory in France is when I went to my first Christmas market and tasted vin chaud for the first time.
I went to the market in La Defense, which is definitely not one of Paris’ best, with three of my friends.
I had no idea what to expect and I instantly fell in love with it! We were all bundled up in our winter clothes and curiously explored all of the stalls.
Now that I am a Christmas market veteran I know where the good markets are, but the one at La Défense will always be special to me.”
