Downtown is beautiful this time of year and we often enjoy an early evening - just as it is getting dark - walk down the streets to see the lights. But it is getting more and more crowded as we approach Christmas. Saturday night it was so packed that the trams could not even get through the throngs of people and they were ringing and ringing their bells - so we went home and had hot tea and listened to Christmas music and played UNO instead! Photos above from earlier in the month. See the photo below from Sat. night - yikes! No place for a kid - he was glued to my hand.
25,000 lights on this tree!
