It’s December. Did you notice the arrival of the most talked about and eagerly awaited month of the year? The advent calendars have started, from the humble chocolate ones to those with £100 worth of beauty products behind each door. No matter how your December has started, there is no denying that the Christmas spirit will soon infect all of us. Personally, I cannot wait for all of the humbugs to start yelling The Pogues at the top of their lungs.
As well as drunken chanting, there is a lot that I’m looking forward to this month. Here’s a taste.
It’s mid-November, and therefore I am expecting to see festive cheer and decorations whenever I go. What can I say: I love Christmas. Restricting Christmas to just December is just not enough for me.
At the weekend, I went on an autumnal walk around central London to see some of the new decorations and give my camera a bit of a work out.
Some of my favourite Christmas decorations in central London this year can be found in Covent Garden. They have it all, from their classic mistletoe hanging over the main market place, to a gigantic Christmas tree sitting in the biggest pot I’ve ever seen.
