The absolute Christmas frenzy has started in the UK. The Brits have been talking about it for two months now! In the early October was the first time I saw “Christmas lunch special” in a pub close to the Hyde Park.
The bank clerk told me on the 4th of October: “Are you excited? Christmas is close!” I believe I offended him when I replied that I am more excited about the Halloween.
Ever since I saw the movie Love Actually, I knew Christmas is a pretty big deal in the UK. However, I didn’t expect fully decorated shops, Christmas markets, Christmas trees and Mariah Carrey’s song blasting through the speakers everywhere I go.
Since it is still a Wonderland, you can also find some Alice themed areas: Mad Hatter’s Tea Shop and Alice tea cups ride.
I was absolutely amazed when I saw The Carousel Bar. Just grab a glass of a mulled wine and join the ride – while the Christmas music blasts all around you.
I have to admit that after the visit to the Winter Wonderland, I got into the whole Christmas Spirit. I called my friend on Skype yesterday and I asked her if she has done her Christmas shopping yet. She looked at me like I am insane and said: “But it’s only the beginning of December”.
