Merry Christmas from London

Christmas in London is special...London knows how to do it right.  Maybe I'm biased...but of all the places I've visited during the Christmas season London stands out.  Yes I loved the Christmas Markets in Germany and the lit up Champs Elysees in Paris but London does it for me each and every time.  Mulled wine (okay Europe has that too..), mince pies, Christmas pudding, roasted chestnuts being sold on the street...

So here's a taste of what you can expect if you ever come to London during the Christmas season...I still have to hit Harrod's window display (I hear there are little favourites!) and there is so much more.  In betweeen stalking Paddington...  Happy Holidays from Restless Prairie Girl!
