The festivities commence
This was the view from my 4th floor window yesterday and I think it sums up why the urban Christmas doesn't really work for me. Just one look at the state of the road (shame on you London Borough of Southwark) reminds me how tacky it all is. Having said that one of the Santas not in shot was wearing a sombrero, which admittedly was very comical. More deliberately funny than the Santas we saw last year in Kenya, the one riding a fine camel, the other walking behind with a shepherd's crook, ringing a hand bell and greeting the supine holidaymakers with a hearty "Merry Kissmas!"
Realised they were heading for Trafalgar Square
