As our loved ones across the seas were opening gifts, unstuffing stockings, and drowning themselves in hot cocoa, my fellow honeymooner and I were enjoying a Christmas Day Carnival at the Grand Palais in Paris. I can't think of a better way of celebrating our first Christmas together as Mr. and Mrs. than with some hot wine, a Ferris Wheel, and the good old carny spirit.
It was really such an incredible day and the very best of Christmases.
If you look closely you can see that most of the ride signage is in English. Almost everything at the carnival was true to old Americana. It was so inspiring to see so many vintage rides in person. Buy me a knapsack and sign me up for the Carny business!
