People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.

Anton Chekhov

Paris winter is particularly magical with Christmas markets, festive lights and warming.


In winter, Paris’s bars propose vin chaud (hot wine) to their menus. This wine consists of heated red wine infused with spices such as cinnamon, cardamom and cloves, sweetened with sugar and some flavoured with slices of orange. You can found it at each Christmas market (marchés de Noël).


For those of you who don’t like the wine teahouse Angelina serves famous hot chocolate L’Africain chocolat chaud . The thick, creamy, rich cups of steaming liquid chocolate are so popular that queues of customers often lead out the door.
