27 Dec 5 reasons to love Christmas spirit in London
Yes, we know: Christmas was a few days ago! However, the City is not ready to give up its festive activities, decorations, and markets yet. So, if you are like us and are still in the Christmas spirit, here are 5 reasons to still love London at this time of year!
1 – Drink mulled wine
When the weather turns cold, it’s time for Londoners to enjoy hot drinks and especially mulled wine. Take part in this custom and act like a real Londoner. Here are few places in Central London where you can enjoy it:
- Drink Shop & Do, King’s Cross
- The Crusting Pipe, Covent Garden
- The Ship Tavern, Holborn
2 – Wear a Christmas Jumper
Admit it, everybody loves to wear a warm Christmas Jumper, while you are watching a festive movie on your sofa or resting in front of a fireplace. Here in London, it’s completely part of the season traditions. Before, during, and even after Christmas Eve, Jumpers are everywhere. It’s up to you to find the most Christmassy one!
3 – Find the perfect secret Santa gift
The secret Santa gift is probably the funniest thing during Christmas. Just to remind you: Secret Santa is a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they give a gift. The identity of the gift giver is a secret until revealed at the gift exchange. This will provide you the jolliest Christmas spirit in London, for sure.
4 – Taste the Christmas pudding
To be honest, the reputation of the Christmas pudding is not very appealing. However, you can’t eat something more traditional. There are a few recipes existing: the classic one, the mandarin-in-the-middle, the cherry pecan or the citrus & spice. All you need to do is try them and find your favorite!
