scout paris 
 
Paris absolutely lights up during the holiday season. It's understated and festive. Spend a day walking around Paris just taking it in. But, don't forget to walk inside the city's hotels, stores, and museums that decorate and go all out for the holidays. It's definitely worth fighting the crowds in order to get a peak at the trimmings. I personally loved the Christmas trees.
