Christmas lights in Paris

Christmas is a magical time of year, but don’t you often find yourself doing the same thing every December? You head to your local town centre to brave the bustling shops, battle people in the supermarket so you can grab that last-minute turkey, and end up spending December 25 with your mum, fussy siblings and the grandparents.

Now, that may sound like great fun to you, but we bet you agree that sometimes it’s nice to do something a little bit different. When it comes to Christmas, few cities put on a better show than Paris. Here are five reasons why you should visit the romantic city this festive season.

For some, Valentine's Day is a welcomed chance to unequivocally pamper their partner with flowers, food, alcohol, and teddy bears holding hearts. For others, the day is a sham concocted by greeting card companies to make more money.

We prefer the former; treating your loved one is definitely something you should look forward to, and with February 14th falling on a Saturday this year, what better way to do it than by whisking them away for a romantic weekend?

Don your shades. Put on your coat. Grab your skis. Head for the slopes. Travel up on the lift. Push-off the terrain. Have the time of your life. Then do it all over again.

Skiing is a weird holiday choice, when you think about it. It's extreme and challenging rather than lazy and relaxing. It's cold; the very thing that many people wish to escape when they book a trip, and other than testing yourself against increasingly difficult runs as the holiday goes on, each day is spent pretty much doing the same thing. So just why are skiing holidays so popular?

Easy: it's because skiing is just about the most fun a person can have with clothes on. Elegantly gliding down the slopes at fast speeds, using your skill and intuition to navigation a run, all while cosy and snug in your winter getups - what's not to love?

Perhaps you haven't enjoyed the rush that skiing provides and are looking to get your first taste, or maybe you're an experienced skier seeking a new place to ply your trade; either way, we've compiled a list of eight of the best skiing destinations in Europe. Check it out.
