The New Year falls on January 1. This is the first day of the year according to the Gregorian calendar. In France, it is a time to share a moment of conviviality around a meal or enjoy some family fun!
Like Christmas Eve, the new year meal is a great one with foie gras, oysters, turkey, fish, and seafood, accompanied by a table wine. Champagne is also generally enjoyed at midnight to celebrate the new year and clink your glasses to the famous phrase: “Happy New Year!”
Goodbye 2013 and hello 2014! We start from scratch as the new year begins and the problems of the previous year are left behind! New Years Eve begins an especially long night filled with joy and good fun.
This year the New Year falls on a Wednesday. This gives you the opportunity to take a vacation and leave for a few days to spend time with family and enjoy the new year in the fresh air!
The mountains are probably one of the most popular destinations this time of year. Enjoy the snow and practice your skiing and other winter sports! What could be more fun and festive? With family or friends, the mountain environment is exceptional to celebrate the transition to the new year!
The Alps, the Pyrenees, or perhaps the Jura, you can find a holiday to suit your taste this holiday season! Be careful and remember to book your accommodation relatively early. It’s a popular week for a holiday you don’t want to miss!
