Whether this is your first Christmas in London, or your tenth, there’s something magical about spending this time of year in such a beautiful, festive city.  London knows no bounds when it comes to Christmas celebrations and preparations, from bustling Christmas markets to extravagant shop windows, beautifully lit streets and mulled wine stations in every local pub.

My biggest wish for Christmas in London is fresh, white snow! Ahh, that would be the dream, wouldn’t it? London hasn’t had a white Christmas since 2010 so whilst it’s not entirely out of the question, I’m not exactly counting on that happening. So instead, I’ve created a new Londoner’s wish list which basically consists of a bunch of really cool, London-y things that every expat who is living in London needs.


How are you spending Christmas this year? Will anyone be spending it in London?
