Advent Windows

Since today is Advent Sunday, I know you’ll all be busy with your coat hangers and tinsel making the Blue Peter Advent Crown (these days, the Health & Safety spoilsports recommend you use baubles instead of real candles, but that’s just plain wrong…) but I thought I’d let you know that the Greenwich Live Advent Windows is going to be happening again this year.

As last year, there will be a different decorated window in Greenwich Town Centre revealed every day of Advent. Some are in shops, some in schools, some in festively-minded individuals’ houses. If it’s anything like last year, it will be a bit of a pick & mix – most were fabulous, a couple were utterly breathtaking; one or two decidedly patchy, but all together they make a really lovely build up to the Big Day and I wouldn’t miss it for all the coffee at Beehive.

If you can’t be bothered to check the website every day, I’ll be posting the address of where to find the day’s window each morning on the blog. A sneak peek ahead looks really quite exciting.

Annoyingly I can’t find any of the photos I took of last year’s windows. They’re in an album somewhere on my computer. Grrr.

So here’s my favourite unofficial Christmas window photo from last year. I call it “T’was Christmas At The Kebab House…”

If that doesn’t get us all in a festive mood, I don’t what will…
