My Sunshiny Life

{November 25, 2009}   Christmas Magic in London

Christmas is coming and London is a different city around Christmas time, turning a little bit magical.  Ice skating, Fabulous Lights, Window Displays, Shopping, Mulled Wine (not on the street, I’m painting a story of Copenhagen here, lets rein it in a bit!)   Anyway, it’s not quite as fairytale perfect as Copenhagen, with open braziers, chestnuts, mulled wine, fabulous markets and lights, but it rocks Christmas in an urban kind of way.

I walked down Oxford Street and down Carnaby Street the other night, happily being a snappy snap tourist in my own city.  The Christmas lights twinkled above and the smell of waffles and caramelised peanuts mingled with the crisp night air, making the madness of Oxford Street a little bit enchanted, yes, even with the crowds!
