the weather has begun to be a bit cold for a month now, but no snow around Paris (it's been 5 or 6 years since it really snowed in Paris...).
Regarding politics not much, it's a rather calm period. The president celebrated his 40th birthday and there has been a little polemic because the Prime minister took a very expensive flight to come back in France, but it's not really a big deal. So like I said, not much ! ^^
And it's Christmas so I suppose people are happy !
