You Are Here Christmas – Paris

The original YAH mug for Paris was released not that long time ago, this summer, yet Starbucks releases a Christmas full-size version of it already. There is no confirmation where this one can be sold, but we have a picture. From the image it becomes obvious that Christmas mug and the regular one only have one difference – points of attraction are outlined in gold and decorated with Christmas elements. These are some points of attraction which I was able to identify:

  • Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile – stands in the center of Place Charles de Gaulle and is one the most famous monuments of the city. It honors those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars
  • Eiffel Tower – the most recognizable icon of Paris and France is 324m (1,063 ft) tall and is visited by almost 7 million people each year. Fun fact – it was initially criticized by artists and intellectuals of France. Well, they all were wrong.
  • Notre Dame de Paris – a very beautiful medieval Catholic cathedral and one of the best examples of French Gothic architecture. Believe it or not, but the construction of this piece of art was completed in 1345 – almost 7 centuries ago.
  • Pont Alexandre III – an arc bridge over the Seine river, is considered the most extravagant bridge of the city.
  • Musée de l’Armée (Army Museum) – is a national military museum of France
  • Baguette – traditional French bread long and cruspy. It is so hard to resist the
  • Eclair – did you know that it translates from French as  ‘flash of lightning’ – it is so good that one eats it in a flash

As any Christmas YAH this mug will be a hard to find one because of the limited production. If you see it, buy it, you won’t regret.
