This week I have been in and out of central London to meet with friends for a spot of Christmas cheer. There’s something about Christmas lights that make things all glistening and beautiful and so I wanted to share a little of this week’s Christmas sparkle with those of you who have spent 2011 following the Gidday journey.
If you remember, my meanderings began with 20 sleeps to go and a wide-eyed wander down Oxford Street.

And last week I was dashing down Regent Street to meet friends for a pre-Christmas dinner and managed to snap a couple of sneaky pics in the middle of the bustling crowds:

So this week it was time to slow down and venture further afield to discover a little more magic:

Liberty are renowned for their Christmas windows…
…but I have to say that, while these are impressive, my heart still belongs to Christmas windows of department store Myer in my hometown of Melbourne.

Anyway, I continued on to fall across that bastion of all things hip, Carnaby Street:
|Hmmm the lights look…interesting|
|They’re still um interesting close up!|
I finally made my way down to the back streets below Piccadilly Circus to meet my friend…
|I do love stumbling across London’s amazing churches like this one on the corner of Jermyn and Duke of York Streets|
…and after drinks were done, I was off for another festive feed at Westfield London. I was a little early so I managed some sparkly snaps here too.
|This is the unadorned ceiling inside – kind of attractive in a wavy way right?|
|…and their Christmas lights? Oh no….|
|Churros – gone! Let’s face it, anything with this much chocolate is always festive|
…before heading home to bask in my very own Christmas Lights at Gidday HQ.
Hope this adds a little sparkle to your Christmas!
ps…the post title says it all peeps. Just 3 sleeps to go. Just
