Christmas in London - a Collection of Videos

For those of you are there who are Londonholics like me and aren't lucky enough to be there right now, here are some videos I picked up on You Tube. They are all short - the longest is just over 3 minutes. Enjoy!

Here's Rick Steves' European Christmas segment on London.

For those of you who want something a little less staged, here are a couple that show the bustling streets the nights before Christmas.

Here's a wonderful short video, "London Christmas Lights 2009"

In this next one, the video's a bit shaky at first but it gets better. It's very nice - Oxford Street Christmas. Plus it has one of my favorite Christmas songs, Chris Rea's "Driving Home for Christmas."

And this one has to be my favorite, from 2007: "Christmas Time in London." It's basically a couple's trip to London as tourists, with a mix of stills and video and accompanied by "All I Want For Christmas."

And finally, a tip on a blog I hit on a daily basis: London Daily Photo. The operator of this blog has a great eye and it's amazing what she can do with a simple camera. Scroll down - over the last week or so, she has a "Snow in London" theme.

That's it for now - later today I'll post my personal Christmas card, and then that'll be it until Sunday. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

Loved the vids. Having spent a couple Christmases in England, I appreciated the memories. Mince pies, yeah.
