Winter is often considered as the least popular season for tourism in France. This is a coldest season of the year when the weather, gloomy and rough, forces the vegetation into a well earned pause. Trees are leafless, their trunks of a darkish-grey colour, and depending on the sky, snow and ice cover entire regions, disrupting human activity. Once the cheerful Christmas and New Year’s celebrations have gone, the long months of January and February are not a season one particularly anticipates in Europe. However they are many light-hearted celebrations and events happening to cheer everyone up.
