Christmas Market

Tuesday, 30 November 2010
The Christmas market opened with a procession of lanterns in various forms ranging from Rudolph to Hello Kitty (!!). Just to let you know, for those who are very competitive, judging for these lanterns begins at 5pm (ish).

The market officially starts exactly a month from Christmas day with an ice skating rink smacked right in the middle of the gamut of stalls selling incredible knick knacks. We came across Santa Claus and his igloo too.

I would've been happy to curl up in bed but no, Little L was adamant we went to see the procession despite the freezing weather.

The council has been busy installing Christmas lights and decorations all over the town centre in the past couple of weeks. It's a sight to behold when the lights are switched on by nightfall which tends to be around 4.30pm at this time of the year.

We walked under the canopy of lights on our way to the Christmas market.
