It’s not yet the 6th day of Christmas and yet many retailers in the West End have taken down their Christmas decorations. The 2 tonne Christmas canopy of Selfridges on Oxford Street disappeared overnight. Where is Harry the Golden Goose now?
Even though each season has it’s own charms, there is an air of sadness when the darkness returns to the West End, when the Christmas lights are removed and the wait for lighter evenings begins.
Christmas 2014 saw nearly 200 attendees on our Christmas lights walks, exploring the retailers and lights, finding new places to eat and drink along the way, surrounded by a sense of cheer and excitement.
Even though I am not a fan of seeing Christmas decorations in the shops before Halloween I must admit, the earlier the retailers plan their Christmas, the more time I have to research my Christmas Lights Guided Walks 2015.
