Apparently, the Christmas Markets will be open this year-2021. Last year, I wrote about the one I attended in Avignon, in Provence/South of France several years ago. My blog post is: Advent Calendar 2020-Day#22, if you look through my archives, you will see it listed. In fact, last year I posted every day during Advent.
Here is a recent article, accompanied by some lovely photos, about the Christmas Markets available if you happen to find yourself in Paris during this Holiday season: https://www.parisdiscoveryguide.com/paris-christmas-markets.html
Drizzly rain and cold temps did not stop some from gathering in Avignon.
