The Christmas holiday season in the city of love would seem far less joyful and inspired without the Paris Christmas markets that have been a tradition for many years. Every year, during the month of December, these wonderful markets pop up around the city and many people visit the romantic city specifically to attend the Paris Christmas markets.
