Suggestions of Paris things to do Christmas and New Years?

Jump to last reply

Woo hoo! It's done! I've rented an apartment in Paris for 4 weeks arriving December 15th, departing January 12th. It has been a dream to not only spend a month in Paris but also to be there for the holidays. Cross two things off my bucket list! As I live in a very rural area 2.5 hours away from the closest city, my primary focus is on museums. I NEED culture! I plan on visiting a museum every morning/early afternoon 6 days a week. I've compiled a list. Now, on to special Christmas holiday things to do/enjoy. I've scanned trip reports and have come up with some ideas. I would appreciate any and all other suggestions/revisions.

Here's my list so far:
Check out the windows at Printemps and Galleries Lafayette
George V and Four Seasons for their decorated lobbies. George V for a glass of champagne
Day trip to Chateau de Vaux Vicomte.
Place Vendôme for Christmas decorations.
Visit the decorated streets of rue des Abbesses/rue Lepic in the 18th
Paris by Mouth cheese tour.
Primtemps rooftop deck? Will it be open?
Wander the Marais on Christmas Day.
Watch people ice skating in front of Hotel de Ville
Take a tour of the Hotel de Ville? I understand there are tours available once a week
A mission for great soupe a l’onion. Au Pied de Couchon?
Buy a buche de Noël?
Wander through the markets on Blvd Richard Lenoir, Marche d'Aligre and Marché Couvert des Enfants Rouges
Day trip to Strasbourg

What were your favorite holiday memories, places to visit? Thanks in advance!
