Christmas Lights @ Carnaby, London (until 3 January 2012)

Carnaby Christmas 2011 11

There is so much great stuff about Christmas – mince pies, decorating the Christmas tree, presents!

Carnaby Christmas 2011 10But one of our favourite things has to be checking out all the cool Christmas lights put up in streets and cities across the UK!

And one of the best this year is over at Carnaby. They’re famous for their unique Christmas installations and this year is no different.

In between sparkling holographic green holly leaf and red berry garlands, three oversized mistletoe chandeliers hang above Carnaby Street.

Even more exciting, each chandelier houses 22 colour-changing ‘berries’ that are co-ordinated to music!  So you can enjoy The Ronettes track ‘I saw Mommy Kissing Santa’ as you go shopping for presents in the cool shops around there!

Carnaby Christmas 2011 - Kingly CourtThere will be 25 oversized holographic holly leaf chains with red lit berries hung in zig-zag formations throughout the area, helping to create a spectacular display throughout the day and night.

The decorations will be there until 3rd January 2012, so make sure you go check them out!
