Bonjour!

Aix has been flourishing since the middle of November with Christmas decorations and lights everywhere. First, they placed some lights on the main street and then the local council just went crazy. There are practically lights on every single street and main buildings, huge trees and Hanukkah candles, small trees in certain streets and La Rotonde is like a lights show every night.

For such a small town, it’s severely surprising how much they have done for Christmas. Not only the lights, the Christmas market is very large and has some great stuff. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to take pictures at a time when the market was open.

Aix is beautiful any day or night but it has recently been wondrous to walk around. All of these pictures were taken the night of 22nd December, probably one of the chilliest winter nights so far, after having a few days of 15-20 degree weather before that!

I hope you enjoy the pictures and enjoy looking at the unbelievable beauty of Aix-en-Provence, these are all unedited…
