for December Below
is a selection of events going on in the capital throughout December.
If you are in the capital over the Christmas period then
the illuminations are not to be missed. The lights are switched on at the end
of November and can be found in Oxford Street, Regent Street and some parts of
Bond Street. It is also worth a trip into the shopping area just to see the amazing
window displays of the major shops.
Tree Every year the Norwegian people give the British
nation a fir tree to thank them for their help during the war. The tree is placed
in Trafalgar Square and decorated with lights. Occasionally carol concerts are
held under the tree during lunch time.
Year's Eve Celebrations Every year the New Year's
Eve celebrations get bigger and better. If you want to go out on new year's eve
there are a number of different celebrations going on around the capital with
street theatre and fireworks, which make for a much better evening out rather
than crowding into Trafalgar Square where their is nothing happening.
Day Sales (the day after Christmas day) If
you are in London over the Christmas holidays then the sales are not to be missed.
Starting on boxing day the sales last for about a month but the best deals are
to be found on the first few days. The sales are not only on in the West End but
all over London and there are bargains galore.
