It was a great month for the Masses in December! I was determined to get into the "Holiday Spirit" since it was my first Christmas here in France and I wanted it to be great. We took advantage of fully decorating our apartment, watching Christmas movies, baking desserts, going to Christmas events, and seeing all the
Fete Des Lumieres / Festival of Lights
This was probably my favorite thing we did in December, despite the cold and large crowds. Over a million people attended over those 3 days. Crazy! There were around 40 different spots you could visit to see the light shows. Super amazing and creative.
Lyon Christmas Market
I really enjoyed my first Christmas market!
"Un Nouveau Spectacle De Noel" - Our Church's Christmas Show
This was Will's first Christmas in France in 7 years so it was special for him to be back and to be celebrating with his family. We had a nice Christmas Eve dinner and enjoyed games and gifts.
Our first Christmas just the two of us meant creating our own traditions. We watched our favorite Christmas movies (Elf & Christmas with the Kranks), ate lots of appetizer food, and got to Facetime with my family for a few hours.
A great first Christmas in France!
