Christmas in the city …

I love Christmas. And I must say that this year I have thoroughly enjoyed all the wonderful festivities my fair city has had on offer this past month in the lead up … whether it’s been the Town Hall projections, the mistletoe bridge at Southgate or the lighting of the city Christmas Tree in Christmas Square there has definitely been a wonderful Christmas presence peppered throughout the city to get one in the spirit of the season.

However my favourite moments would have to be those spent wandering about the beautiful laneways whilst on the hunt for Christmas gifts and decor, enjoying a cup or more of lovely hot chocolate from the likes of Koko Black, and discovering some rather whimsical Christmas displays along the way. It’s simple things like this that get me all excited about this time of the year and with only one more sleep to go I wanted to share a snapshot of all the wonderful things I have spied in town as Melbourne celebrates Christmas. Enjoy …
