An insight into the German and Parisian Christmas markets
The most favorite Christmas childhood memory for many people is all about going to the Christmas market while clutching their mother’s pinky and buying beautiful clothes and decorative items for the Christmas tree along with baked goodies.
Christmas is closer than you can realize and finally, the season of shopping, baking, and spreading love and generosity has arrived. The vibe you’ve always wanted to feel is on its way and with it, the gates to the famous Christmas markets have also opened.
Parisian Christmas Markets
Parisian Christmas Markets is all about the magical wonderland you have been to in your dreamland. The obsession with Christmas markets in Paris during this favorite season is something to swoon over. But finally, it is acceptable to be obsessed with it.
The wooden chalets (although these days they were somewhat tents) spruced up in a row are the classic characteristic of Christmas markets, where all Christmas related stuff are sold — decorations, knickknacks, regional items, home decor, roasted nuts, sparkling wine, and the other festive trinkets you expect like wreaths, embellished trees, and Santa’s seminars.
Traditional Christmas markets can be seen in every Parisian vicinity, and they’re generally available from late November to early January. Leisure markets, which have become mainstays of the holiday season, originated in Germany during the Middle Ages and were brought to Paris by Alsatians who resided here.
One can have a serious shopping spree in the city that transforms into a warm persona while admiring the ‘bias’ Eiffel Tower and the ‘bias wrecker’ Parisian Christmas Market, along with being lost in the stuffed air-filled with the scent of spiced goodies and mulled wine.
La Magie de Noël- ‘the Christmas magic’ that is what Google translator says but you would find yourself saying the same once you are at Tuileries Garden.
Each holiday season, more than 13 million people visit the Christmas themed market, which includes a huge roller coaster, more than a dozen other fairground rides, a skating rink, a Sparkling wine bar, piping hot copper tanks of classical onion soup, and hot mulled wine, French-produced specialty food products, handcraft art, and Christmas presents from around the globe, shimmering lights, and innumerable Santas and reindeer.
