After a whirlwind tour of France and England these last two weeks and with so much to do before we celebrate the holidays ourselves, we’re offering you, our readers, small glimpses of the English holiday season rather than lengthy posts for the next few days. We’re calling them “postcards” since we’ll share one or two pictures each day — of decorations or markets or holiday color — ’til the 25th. Here’s hoping these daily glimpses of seasonal sightings in England — some splashy, some subtle — will put you in the spirit of the holidays and transport you to a land where charm abounds.
From us to you: Christmas 2016 Postcards from England!
December 15, 2016 — Greetings from Bath, England
At the base of Bath Abbey, Christmas Markets glow in the dark. Over 170 wooden structures house crafty things, imported goods, handmade items, or whatever the vendor wants to share with you. We loved the markets for color and charm, for unique qualities of workmanship or just for what the vendor wanted to share with us. And we were content to look, listen to the exchanges, and purchase a little — as we sampled life in England at Christmastime.
Come back tomorrow for another postcard. Merry Christmas!
