It’s That Time Of Year Already?! The Christmas Lights Are Back In London

It feels as if it was only yesterday that the sun was beating down on our backs and we were all out drinking cider on the streets (because that happened…once…) but already the signs of Winter are beginning to show and we’re overheating in our woolies on the tube again. (Our guide: where to see Christmas lights in London.) Head down to Oxford Circus, however, and you might find yourself feeling a little disoriented. Nope, you haven’t just slept through the whole month of October and you’re eyes do not deceive you. Things are looking suspiciously festive…

  In the wee hours on Monday morning, Santa and his little team of City of Westminster elves set to work lighting up London once again, preparing to turn the city into a Winter Wonderland for 3 long months of festive cheer and eating whatever you want without worrying about the consequences. With still over 70 days to go until Christmas, the lights may seem a little premature but the official turning on won’t happen until early November. So you can quit your complaining, Grinches. Here’s some of our favourite Instagrams of Oxford Circus looking all pretty in its Christmas clothes…
