From decorations around town, to the Christmas markets starting, French people are finally getting into the holiday spirit!

Provence is a weird place for all this, though. It may sound like Christmas, it may feel like Christmas, it may even smell like Christmas! It just doesn't look like Christmas belongs here in this town of sandy coloured buildings, bright shutters, orange leaves, and 65°.

I guess I'm just used to my grey New York.

Little kids; getting so excited for Christmas!
It's beginning to look a lot like Aix-mas... but the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be on your own front door!
