Christmas in London, Southbank Market
My seasonal calendar is off-kilter. No traditional Thursday Thanksgiving meal this year. The stores and streets have been decorated for Christmas since the end of October. I’m conditioned to the cycle of Halloween, Thanksgiving and then… a manic post-Thanksgiving 3 1/2 weeks of shopping, cleaning, decorating and cooking. The Christmas season is rolling out gradually here, giving everyone time to enjoy the small things that come with the holiday season. I like it.
I met The Mister at Southbank on the first day of the Southbank Christmas Market. The Christmas lights were on, tempering the gloom of the misty, foggy dreary London afternoon. We walked past the little huts, decorated with greens and sparkling Christmas lights, past the street buskers playing Christmas carols and stopped at the hut selling mulled wine and warm, roasted pecans. A perfect way to kick off the Christmas season.
Stay tuned for more Christmas in London posts 🙂
