We love Paris all year long, but during the holiday season, our obsession is truly on another level. From roasted chestnuts to an Hermès Christmas tree, here are 10 reasons we absolutely adore the City of Lights at Christmastime.

You can skate in front of the Eiffel Tower!


The Eiffel on Ice Christmas Village is a can't-miss.

There are Christmas Markets galore...


So you can shop to your heart's content.

The department store window displays...


Will make you feel like you fell right into a fairytale.

You can get sweet Christmas treats like these...


At an equally magical bakery called the SugarPlum Cake Shop. Trés bon!

At Disneyland Paris...


Mickey and Minnie make the holiday spirit feel even more magical.

The ice skating rinks...


Are surrounded by enchanting holiday lights and decorations.

There are actual vendors who sell roasted chestnuts...


Straight out of Mel Torme's "Christmas Song."

The glow of the Eiffel Tower...


Makes all the decorations at the Paris Christmas markets feel romantic.

Even their trees are Haute Couture...


Like this one done by Hermès.

The Galeries Lafayette Christmas tree...


Is huge and makes for a mind-blowingly spectacular photo op

There are magical Notre-Dame celebrations...


It's almost like a Disney-themed cathedral.

And finally... Champs-Elysees looks like this.


Words can't describe the magic of Paris at Christmastime.
