COLUMBIA ROAD AT CHRISTMAS
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times. London is the prettiest city in the world during the festive season. Even New York City doesn’t compare in my opinion. London does Christmas so well!
I have always loved Christmas, from choosing and wrapping gifts, to struggling to fall asleep as a child, hoping to hear Santa sneak into the house. I love it all, Christmas cake, Christmas decorations, Christmas lights, Christmas movies. All of it.
I’ve been ticking off my London Christmas to-do list, making sure I see all the lights and drink all the mulled wine. Columbia Road at Christmas time is also a must visit. We stopped by a couple of weekends ago, just before it was closing for the afternoon, and the street was heaving with people buying everything from trees to mistletoe.
shoved our way through people strolled along eyeing up the wreaths and the berries, as people passed us with Christmas trees over their shoulders, fireman lift style. If you’re wanting to decorate your place with anything festive and plant related, Columbia Road is the place you need to head to this Sunday.
It will be busy, there will be people and puppies everywhere. So I advise either indulging in a mulled wine (or something stronger) before you make your way into the crowds, or perhaps afterwards to calm the nerves. Either way, embrace the Christmas madness, and enjoy the smell of the hundreds of Christmas trees.
Happy weekend x
