Happy Christmas!

Edinburgh at Christmas

We’ve made a couple of trips over to Edinburgh in the last few weeks to visit art exhibitions, but also taking plenty of time to appreciate the sights and sounds of Christmas: the funfair, the market, the Street of Light.

This gallery is my Christmas card to you.

The last picture has nothing to do with Christmas at all: John snapped this tour bus coming up from Edinburgh’s New Town on one of our summer visits. I just love the composition and don’t want to waste it, so here it is!

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone! May 2017 bring us all hope and joy. See you then.

    A lovely set of Christmassy photos Annabel! A bit late but hope you had a wonderful Christmas and very best wishes for the New Year! 🙂

    Happy (belated) Christmas to you too! I narrowly missed seeing Edinburgh’s Christmas market a few years ago (they were setting it up when I was there, but it wasn’t open yet), so it’s nice to see it in action! The lights are very pretty too.

      I like to walk through the market and look at the lights but it’s always horrendously busy so we don’t linger too long. It’s lovely but I get claustrophobic in the crowds.

    Edinburgh definitely seems to be the winner in the Christmas lights contest. With the wheel and the spinning chair ride it makes Glasgow’s seem tame and sedate by comparison. I was through there myself recently. Wouldn’t be surprised if Edinburgh ends up Scotland’s largest city at some future date as they really pack the new buildings in tight and high level whereas Glasgow’s new houses seem scattered and low rise these days. Best wishes for a Happy New Year.

      I confess I had a quick walk round the St Enoch’s market a few weeks ago but haven’t been near George Square. *Whispers* Edinburgh’s definitely better at Christmas.

    Love seeing these pictures for your Christmas card to all of us. It’s so pretty and a belated Merry Christmas to you! I hope your New Year brings joy, many walks and health to you both. Glad you can use my cards too:)

      Thanks Birgit – and best wishes for the new year to you and Michael too.

    These photos definitely give me the Christmas spirit – Happy Christmas to you, Anabel!
