Why is the city of Paris called the City of Light?
The city of Paris has a nickname. Do you know what a nickname is? A nickname is another name, usually a shorter name, which is lovingly given to someone in place of his or her real name. Paris is called “The City of Light” because for hundreds of years it was, and still is, an important center for education and learning.
But, what does light have to do with education and learning? Well, have you ever heard of the word, enlighten? Do you know the meaning of enlighten? It’s what happens when we receive information and knowledge. We become enlightened!
