It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas

Come December, one of my favourite things to do is to go and look at the Christmas lights in the city centre. Last week we decided we needed to get out of the house and do just that to try and kickstart those festive feelings.  We started by indulging in bratwurst hotdogs with sauerkraut, then walked around enjoying the fairy lights strung from the buildings and the sweet little cabins dressed in garlands, ribbons, wreaths and yet more fairy lights.







Having explored the high street, we headed to the Winter Garden where different coloured lights intertwined amongst the subtropical plants, along with weird little creatures that were hidden in the branches above.  A majestic Christmas tree stood tall and made for a wonderful contrast against the palms.






We finished in a coffee shop with hot drinks on comfy armchairs, whilst watching the world go by.  One thing is for certain, there is nothing like a load of fairy lights to get you in the Christmas mood.
