Chartres Calendar - December Events 2011

Are you looking for fun things to do in December events list?

We usually have snow in December... at least in this last two years... unusual heavy snow!

Bords de L'Eure
December Snow in Bords de L'Eure

when the snow falls too much, the road might get slippery and you might see some cars spinning and skiing on the street.

People, mostly who lives in the country side can not go to work because it is impossible to drive in this condition, no bus running on the street, occasional holidays for students.

No worry... these could be happened if the snows falls really really heavy... but it did... as I mentioned above, since this last 2 years.

The good news is... children can play snow balls war and decorating a snowman!
