December is here and this means that I can shout from the rooftops my excitement for festive cheer. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year, and earlier this week I got jolly at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, London.
After entering the Winter Wonderland entrance (it’s free to enter!) I was greeted by the Angels Market. There I was able to browse the stalls for scarfs, ornaments, and wooden crafts alike. There’s also a lot of carnival rides that you can enjoy – I didn’t get a chance to go on any but I can imagine the view of London and the festival from atop the Ferris wheel would be spectacular.
My favorite part of all was the Bavarian Village. Here we were able to get beer steins and sit down at the classic German long tables to listen to a German band – their performance included the macarena (yes, I danced!) and I’m pretty sure the entire tent was singing along to the Spice Girls “Wannabee”.
There’s no doubt that Winter Wonderland is the Christmas event not to be missed in London for holiday cheer.
