I think there are two kinds of people in this world: those who look forward to the Christmas break to have a few days off work and share a meal with family and friends, and those who are breaking out the tinsel in November, planning festive get-togethers and running around like a little elf in December. I definitely fall into the latter category. I. love. Christmas.
I think the festivity that this time of year brings is so wonderful - cities light up with decorations, pop-up events appear everywhere and there is a generally jolly spirit around. Being in London for the Christmas season this year is even more exciting for me - with the cold climate here, the holiday season is even more wonderful. Here are some of the festive attractions on in London that I can't wait to see.
Hyde Park Winter Wonderland
Somerset House ice-skating
Department store Christmas windows
Southbank Christmas Markets
Trafalgar Square Carols
And just to top it all off nicely, I'm off to visit the quaint little Bruges Christmas market's in Belgium in a few weeks. I'll be sure to share my weekend with you.
