The Five Best Signs for The Start of Christmas in Paris

November 20, 2022
2022-11-20
Paris is such a big and busy city that it's easy to get lost. Not just lost in the sense of not knowing where you are, but also in the sense of no longer knowing what time or even what season it is. If not for the weather, you'd barely know what time of the year it is! That is if it's not the holiday season. Come Christmastime, the French capital transforms into a more enchanting city. There are various signs everywhere that indicate that the holiday season is approaching. Look out for colder weather, more lights throughout the city, and the holiday window displays!

The Five Best Signs for The Start of Christmas in Paris


The Weather is Getting Colder

Since December is the start of winter, the approaching holiday season always means that the weather is about to get colder. Once you feel like you need to layer up more than you did in autumn, this should also tell you that you need to start planning for Christmas too. Before you know it, the holidays are already here. Unfortunately, however, a white Christmas is quite rare in Paris. Snowfall typically happens around mid-January to February, sometimes even early March too. Very rarely does it snow in December in Paris. But the temperature will make you think it will!

More Lights in The 'City of Lights'

They don't call Paris the 'City of Lights' for nothing! All throughout the year, the French capital stays as bright as ever during the night. The pièce de résistance is, of course, the sparkling Eiffel Tower. It's quite a sight to see no matter the time of the year! With that said, come late November or early December, you start to notice that there are lights twinkling everywhere. Suddenly, all the other neighborhoods in Paris are as sparkly as the iconic tower. This only goes to show that the city is already preparing for Christmas!

Mickey Mouse is Already Wearing His Gay Apparel

If there's one place that's already spreading holiday cheer in Paris so early in the year, it's Disneyland Paris! As early as the first few weeks of November, they're already introducing their annual 'Enchanted Christmas' festivities. While Halloween was dominated by the villains from your favorite Disney films, this season is all about the good guys. All the beloved princes & princesses, adorable characters, and more don their holiday garb, looking as bright as ever as they walk through the park or greet the people during the daily parades. Even Mickey Mouse himself is wearing his gay apparel just for the occasion!

Department Stores are Presenting Their Holiday Displays

Back to the actual streets of Paris, the first few signs of Christmastime are in the windows of the city's most famous department stores. They unveil their annual displays very early on, around late November or early December. They even make quite the events out of them. When it's time to reveal this year's decorations, plenty of people, both locals and tourists alike, gather around, hoping to be the first to catch a glimpse. These magnificent displays often depict the holiday spirit, featuring smiling snowmen, dashing nutcracker soldiers, dancing fairy princesses, falling snowflakes, colorful Christmas trees, and more.

More Music In The Streets

Lastly, if you start to hear more music on the streets of Paris, that's another good sign that the city is already preparing for the holiday season. Paris is often full of music, sure, but this time of the year is different. Suddenly, you hear groups of people singing Christmas carols, jingling bells, little kids playing about, and more. Despite how busy the city is all-year-long, the music during the holiday season simply hits differently. It makes you feel different too. Everything you hear fills you with a warm feeling, one that you won't ever want to go away!
