Winters in Europe are like sitting inside a freezer literally. I celebrated by 4 new years in London from 2006 to 2010. And all those years I enjoyed my time staying in London. To me I really enjoy shopping in London, there is a clear reason why, the discounts you get on high street and the sheer number of people turn up for bargains and shopping is simply staggering. New Year brings lot of new opportunities and happiness in London. The year end sale, the warmth of mulled wine, the shopping fiesta all sums up a great New Year Celebrations in London.
New Year Celebration is like ones in a year celebration, which is together with Christmas celebrated. The atmosphere changes all around when December arrives, huge shopping discounts all around, and retail business gets active for an all time high year end sales. The decorations of Christmas and New Year are simply breath taking around London. The celebrations start with Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and then the whole Oxford Street is light with old tradition of lights. On the New Year eve, there are special arrangements around the city. Spectators from around the world line up to celebrate New Year near Trafalgar Square, Near London Eye, to see the Fireworks unfold in front of them. The number of people visit this place on 31st night is huge and everyone enjoys the mid night music, food, fire crackers. This year 2013, the fire crackers were awesome, and me and my friends had a ball, as we got pretty close to the London Eye, and did got a chance to see the fire crackers. It was a great start to New Year 2014 by watching fire crackers and being with friends and family. It’s a ones in a life time spectacle to see the great colorful fireworks. Must see and visit for all London lovers.
