Yuletide is celebrated in (the southwest of) France each year with – among other things – Christmas markets. Each little town is proud to gather in its main square, around the traditional Christmas tree, “vin chaud” and roasted chesnuts stalls, traditional local delicacies – pies and other bakery products, what it seems as an endless assortment of cheeses, foie gras (usually canned) etc. and the usual artisans’ booths.
This year is no exception and while I notice that the Toulouse Capitol Square Christmas Market figured exactly the same booths placed in the same location as last year it is still nice to visit it especially in the evening and to feel the enchanting atmosphere brought about by the beautiful lights.
Below are some photos. Enjoy!
