The kids are on holiday from the weekend and there's only one week left to prepare for the big family celebration. If you're too tired to consider cooking on Christmas Day, there are a couple of lunch suggestions in our Christmas in Monaco listing.
New Year's Eve is traditionally a time to party, with something for every size of purse in Monaco. In the Christmas Village you'll find free entertainment and inexpensive food stalls, and in the heart of Monte Carlo there's more than one gourmet dinner that costs over 800 euros per person.
Looking ahead to 2015, we'll all be celebrating with a holiday on 7th January, when twins Jacques and Gabriella are presented to the Principality from the Palace balcony. Before then, a sweet way to welcome the new arrivals has been created by the Meridien's chef patissier Julien Beaulieu. In honour of the babies, he's devised two choux buns, which are available for 12 euros with a hot drink in the hotel bar.
Further ahead, football fans are excited by the forthcoming UEFA Champions League round that pits Monaco against Arsenal. The first match for the Reds and Whites, who are considered to be the underdogs, is 25th February in the UK, with the home game on 17th March at Stade Louis II.
Finally, since Christmas Day and New Year's Day fall on Thursdays this year, this is our last newsletter until 8th January. We'll still be working tho', posting updates on Twitter, and telling you what's happening in Monaco in our 7-day rolling events listing.
Thanks for all your support in 2014, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
