Someone just reminded me that we should be turning back our clock by an hour this Sunday as British Summer Time ends. With the temperature dipping and the autumn winds picking up, it means only one thing - Christmas is just round the corner!
In fact, we must have been looking forward to Christmas ever since end of August. The dearth of bank holidays between September till November just make Christmas and Boxing Day all that more tantalising.
There is always this love hate relationship with Christmas. The anticipation being one thing, the mad rush for gifts and what not being another. The thought of nudging your way through the shopping crowds along Oxford Street and Regent Street is not exactly something to look forward.
But it doesn't have to be like that, does it? With the Country Living Magazine Christmas Fair, all the Christmas gifts and decoration shopping can be done under one huge roof. Not only that, expect to sample delicious food offerings from regional artisan producers.
As previous years, the Christmas Fair in London will be held at Islington Business Centre, mere minutes away from Angel Tube station, from 7th to 11th November. Tickets are priced at £16.50. The good news is that readers of London Expat would be able to enjoy a discounted price of £12 (quoting promotional code of "CLX2" when booking at its website.
