‘Tis the season to be jolly!  Nonetheless, while the temperature is dropping, this rainy weather we’re having may definitely be dampening your spirit, which can drastically hinder the achievement of said ‘jolliness’.  Now that we’ve entered December, if you’re aching to feel Christmasy but having difficulty doing so (especially if you’ve relocated to London from a locale that has snow in the winter, not rain), my strong recommendation to you is to hop the Tube or bus to Hyde Park Corner for its Winter Wonderland!

I can’t adequately describe in words how darling and fun this annual event truly is, but I’ll try…It is certainly something for all ages to enjoy, with its abundance of ice-skating, carnival rides (and really cool ones, including a haunted house, rollercoaster, and the world’s largest free-fall tower), German Christmas Market, and assorted vendors of mulled wine (you can purchase the mug as a souvenir), hot cider, beer, and food.  My particular favourite area is the Bavarian Village, featuring live music and a 2-story lodge-like shelter that serves up 1-liter steins of the frosty brew and sausages served up with saurkraut  and potatoes.  Good ol’ St. Nick is also on the premises, so bring your wishlist if you’ve been Nice this year.

Whatever the brutal London weather we’ve been struggling through, this event is sure to make your spirits bright by warming you from within…from your heart to your belly 🙂  And not too far away are the infamous Oxford and Regent streets for helping you check off your gift list.  London Relocation Ltd. wishes you a happy holiday season!
