Champs-Elysées Christmas Market Paris

I love Christmas markets, Christmas Markets are set up throughout different cities, each packed with stands of gourmet food, mulled wine and handmade presents.

Today I decided to tell you a little bit about Christmas Markets in Paris.
The light-draped Champs-Elysées will lead you to exactly where you want to be. Here you'll find the largest Christmas market in Paris that runs from the Champs-Elysées roundabout (Metro Franklin D. Roosevelt), all the way to the Place de la Concorde (Metro Concorde).

It offers a large variety of Christmas arts and crafts products, so it's an ideal place to stop to do some shopping.
The aroma of hot spiced wine while shopping, cheeses, Nutella crepes, giant-sized ginger bread cookies, sausages, wines and other winter season specialties.
I am a sweets lover and one of my favorites are churros - sweet, crispy, fried dough. Yummy!

Churros - Yummy!
