Weekend Links: Week 26

weekend links week 26 place vendôme christmas decorations

Weekend Links Week 26 is the first of December and it luckily does contain some festive articles. Get in the spirit with the news of a Christmas Eve concert at Notre Dame and a list of chic holiday gifts from hotel boutiques (including the Ritz Paris). I particularly enjoyed a 20 year old podcast episode titled “Americans in Paris” with David Sedaris as well as photos of how high society Parisians dealt with the pandemic in the 1920’s. I hope you enjoy!
