Twinkling trees along the magnificent Champs Elysees, glimmering cityscapes from atop the Arc de Triomphe, hourly sparkles from La Tour Eiffel… The City of Light definitely earns its moniker, and it shines even brighter during the holidays. After only three days, we fell under the magic spell of Paris and its… je ne sais quoi. From leisurely meals at any hour to indulgent pastries on every corner (made with REAL SUGAR and REAL BUTTER!), Parisians sure know how to enjoy life, and we overstimulated Americans can learn a thing or two about their outlook.

While there were so many special moments that left us awestruck, I’ve narrowed it down to a few favorites. Enjoy!
