My idea of Christmas.

My thanks to Terry Basson – a Bath Newseum regular for the following:

‘Not sure what Christmas is all about?

Then walk down Walcot Street in Bath and see the twinkle of burning lights and the flickering glow of over a hundred wall-hung Christmas trees –  with strings of white bulbs strung along all the facias of every building.

The recent Lantern Procession in Walcot Street

 

Walcot Street is where you discover the poorer little artisan shops who seem to survive whilst the wealthy chain stores in the city seem often to close.

Charles Dickens shopped here, Jane Austin walked here and Admiral Nelson climbed the Penny Steps.

Then we have the nearby churches that give shelter and hot food to lost souls who are struggling with their lives on the cold streets.

Tell me dear servant, take a peek at Christmas and warm your heart down Walcot Street.’

Thanks Terry, and a Merry Christmas to you and yours!
