End of the ice cavern

Thursday 9th January 2020, 9.45am (day 3,059)

End of the ice cavern, 9/1/20

Early January, time to take down the Christmas decorations. Or, in this case, the Christmas ice-based themed dispenser of alcohol. Let’s time how long it is before the next similar installation thing goes up outside the Corn Exchange; when’s Chinese New Year, a month?

Sunday before Christmas

Sunday 22nd December 2019, 4.45pm (day 3,041)

Cafe decorations, 22/12/19

‘Tis the Sunday before Christmas, and by now it is obligatory for every commercial establishment to have decorated somehow. But so be it — our decorations are up at home as well.

Taking down the decorations, Canal Street

Thursday 5th January 2017, 2.00pm (day 1,960)

Xmas lights down, 5/1/17

I had a picture of the lights on Canal Street when they were up — and here they are being taken down, as tradition dictates, before Twelfth Night tomorrow. By the guy on the ladder in the background, who busted the photographer — one reason I quite like this shot, as well as the depth of field.

Trades Club tree

Trades Club tree, 28/6/15

Hebden Bridge being the place it is, it has an Arts Festival. Arts Festivals being what they are, people are decorating trees. The Trades Club being what it is, here is its tree. QED.

Manchester Christmas market

Monday 12th December 2011, 8.50am (day 109)

Xmas supplies, 12/12/11

Back to Manchester. Xmas market still full of stuff this morning. Isn’t it a little late to be expecting to get rid of a few dozen Christmas trees and ten reindeer seemingly made out of compost? Maybe, but what do I know.

Decorations, Covent Garden

Thursday 17th November 2011, 7.45am (day 84)

Covent Garden decorations, 17/11/11

I spent a good portion of the middle part of my life avoiding London, but recently I have been visiting more often. It was nice today to be able to walk out of a hotel on quite a pleasant late autumn morning and be exploring Covent Garden before everywhere was open and while it was still fairly quiet. I think it’s too early to have Christmas decorations up anywhere – but I suppose these ones are quite attractive.
