Top Things To Do In Edinburgh At Christmas11/21/2016 07:06:00 pm
It's the most wonderful time of the year... Yes Christmas is here, and I am too excited by this fact. This weekend I went to see the Light On festival in Edinburgh, celebrating the start of the Christmas season, and lighting up the city in a magical way. This made me start to think about what a great place Edinburgh is to celebrate Christmas in, so I thought I'd share my top 5 things that you should do while in the capital at this time of the year. So crank up Michael Buble, grab a hot chocolate and snuggle under a blanket as you fantasise about these festive outings.
Not only does the Street of Light brighten up the city centre, you'll find festive touches all over the city. The Dome always creates a beautiful display of wreaths, and Multrees Walk keeps everything very classy and sparkly - echoing the higher end shops in that area. You could even take a walk up the mound to see the Christmas Tree, gifting from Norway - a massive tree covered in thousands of lights, what could be more Christmassy? The whole of Edinburgh truly embraces the season, with The Caledonian covered in lights, and the arches twinkling even during the day, and Victoria Street becoming even cuter (if that's possible). It's worth spending some time wandering around the streets to see all the lights, trees and decorations, and in no time you'll feel super Christmassy.
Go To The Panto
Pantos are a huge Christmas tradition for many families, and this year Jack and the Beanstalk has come to town. Prepare for an evening filled with laughter and smiles. Filled with traditional panto jokes, and some twists on the classic fairy tale, pantos are one of the best places to go to feel Christmas cheer. Whether you're a kid or an adult, you'll find enjoyment at the panto - a perfect place for families to go and spend time together, while not freezing your toes off outside!
