Christmas time is perhaps the one time, that being bitterly cold and getting dark so early in the day, is perfectly acceptable in London. The idea of Christmas and all the traditions it brings literally make this magnificent city come alive. Growing up on the other side of the world meant many Christmases in summer but after more than few in London, I have to say I much prefer Christmas in this part of the world, I even look forward to the compulsory viewing of Eastenders.
This year I decided to take my camera out and about to try to document what I love about London at this time of year.
Twelve days of Christmas on Regent
LED Baubles on Oxford
Arches and robins on Carnaby
I have never been brave enough to try this in London but doesn’t it look fun
My beloved Selfridges
Why can’t I make my Dyson look like this?
I thought this was kind of cool
and I couldn’t walk out of Selfridges with nothing for myself plus I loved the cover of this tin
and the name of this candle
Love London at Christmas but New Year’s Eve in winter; give me a street party in Wellington (NZ) or fireworks off the Sydney Harbour Bridge (Aus) every time.
