Well, if you already live here you may as well make use of the winter backdrop and do something Christmas-y!

Christmas markets abound, including at the following locations:

* Hyde Park Winter Wonderland – 19 November – 4 January

* Christmas Market at Southbank Centre – 19 November – 23 December

* Greenwich Christmas Market – 24 November – 31 December

* Paddington Christmas Market – 29 November – 3 December

* Real Food Christmas Market at London’s Southbank Centre – 3-5 and 17-19 December

* Belgravia Christmas Sunday – 5 December

* The Chocolate Festival at London’s South Bank Centre – 10-12 December

* Christmas at Kew – 11 December – 3 January

And of course, as I wrote about before in my “Dashing Through the Snow…-less London Streets!” post, you have a few Santa-themed runs to choose from (though the weathermen are looking to make a liar out of me where that post title is concerned…).

Also not to miss is the tree-lighting at Trafalgar Square on 2 December, and if you want to really make spirits bright, you might consider volunteering for Crisis at Christmas.

Keep warm in the meantime, everyone! If you haven’t yet found your new flat, we will make sure it’s a speedy process that keeps you out of the cold as we drive you door-to-door and help you get a move-in date soon so you can mix up some hot toddies and snuggle within the comforts of your new home (in case the weather becomes too frightful for those markets :)).
