It took some time for me to find Christmas spirit outside the wintery Finland where snow, candles, cinnamon scents and cold but crisp weather are enough to create a festive atmosphere. In other countries like England where greyness and rain dominate December, one must try harder.
In London the effort to create a perfect Christmas spirit is definitely taken seriously. Christmas markets, Christmas lights, carols, concerts, Winter Wonderlands, ice rinks, Christmas trees and, this year for the first time, illuminated forest walks. It is hard not to notice that Christmas is coming.
Even though it’s not the same as my childhood Christmas times, I’ve still grown to love Christmas in London. See below my best pictures of London in December 2014.
