An important tradition in France, Christmas markets are made up of wooden stalls and are typically located in the main square or street of a town. Vendors at Christmas markets sell seasonal decorations, handcrafted items, “vin chaud” (mulled wine), Christmas cakes, cookies and gingerbread among other items. Christmas markets have become popular tourist attractions over the years and are known to have had a positive impact on local residents, by fostering a sense of community and connection.
Alliance Française invites Pune to celebrate Christmas by supporting the city’s network of entrepreneurs, as is tradition in a French Christmas market. With a line-up as diverse as the ones below, visitors are bound to leave with gifts for friends and inspiration for the new year ahead.
