Day 53- 25/11/09

Tonight I went to see the Christmas lights turned on. It seems this is a huge tradition over here that everyone comes to the town centre, does a countdown, and a celebrity turns the lights on. Naturally I went to see what it was all about. The cast of the panto "Peter Pan" were the celebrities, there were about a thousand kids and teenagers, the countdown was done, the lights went on, fake snow shot from a cannon, and everyone slowly walked out of the square singing "Merry Christmas Everybody" by Slade. (A song I don't think came out at home). The night had an element of Christmas magic to it.
