Around France

A Christmas in Uzès Preview

This year I plan to spend the holiday in France.  Friends say there’s nothing in the world quite like it. Here’ a Christmas in Uzès preview. 

One year I was in Uzès until late December so I got a hint of how special the atmosphere is around here. There are festive decorations on street lamps and above the roadways and walkways in town, store windows are filled with holiday gift items, and piped-in music blankets the airways. It is truly magical.

If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by!


A Christmas in Uzès Preview 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you be of good cheer
It’s the most wonderful time of the year

It’s the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It’s the hap-happiest season of all

  3. How timely. We will be in the area for Christmas and New Years, staying in isle sur la Sorgue area. We are planning to go around to the villages and towns to see the Christmas displays etc. Uzes was already on the list. If you have any tips on special events around the area, we would appreciate hearing from you.
    Any recommendations for Christmas dining would also be appreciated.
    As always, I enjoy reading your blog and insights of living in France.

    • That pottery shop is just around the corner from me. I love checking out the new hens when they come in. I now have two of their cats. Love! Thanks for the note!
