Why December is the best month to be in London

Let me officially put it, December is the best month to be in London. No matter how the weather behaves, which also is not that crazy, because no city in the world does Christmas like London.  If one word can describe London around Christmas time it is, magical, very magical and for a girl who believes in magic there is no better place. By December I mean the days before Christmas, can get a tad bit dull and sad after. 

1. December is off tourist season, ok I accept that people are shopping and the streets can be a bit crowded specially regent street and bond street, etc but its nothing like the touristy summer months.

2. Everywhere you go specially central London there is beautiful decoration, lights and it all. Christmas songs playing in the stations, taxis, on the street basically the festive mood is everywhere. I love to carry my camera around everywhere, taking snapshots of my beloved city.  And the decked up beauty makes up for everything, like seriously.

3. People are super jolly and happy, greetings and cheers. I believe it's the people that make a place and happy people make London more magical around Christmas time. 

4. There are zillion things to do. Skate at the ice rinks, my favourite is somerset house or go to winter wonderland. Eat at the Christmas markets and load up on the mulled wine. Bursting with season activities. 

5. Visit the Christmas lit Covent garden, Fortnum and Mason, Selfridges, Liberty or just wrap up warm and walk around Mayfair and soak into the season. 

Christmas day is dull because no one is literally there, you can have the whole Oxford street to yourself, which can be a good thing if you are a blogger, lol and then you can hit the stores on 26 for boxing day sales. But I suggest online shopping for all the many reasons. 

I encourage you to experience this mood of London and fall in love with it all over again. 

Thank you for stopping by, see you with my next.
