In France, instead of sending Christmas cards, it’s more popular to send New Year’s cards. New Year’s wishes can arrive up to a few weeks after the 1st of the year, which means that I can take my time writing them, and my family and friends can receive and enjoy them away from all of the crazy mayhem of the “normal” holiday season. In France, you can find New Year’s Cartes de Voeux at any card shop this time of the year. Online, I like moo.com for funky and modern cards, or ooprint.fr for more traditional or corporate cards. In the U.S., I recently saw that Wedding Paper Divas has a nice line of New Year’s cards in their Tiny Prints line. Honestly, it’s a great way to relieve some of the holiday pressure, and a nice little Frenchy tradition to adopt as your own.

Any cheap/free New Year’s Eve celebrations. I’ve heard something going on on the Champs Ellyses (fireworks, etc..) Your suggestions would be welcomed.
