Subject: Christmas in London
Yes, London is dead for the Christmas Holiday (including 12/26, which is Boxing Day), but the countryside is alive! It is very popular in England for couples and whole families to spend Christmas at a country hotel/resort, most of which have elaborate festivities and marvelous Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and Boxing Day dinners and events. Find a lovely country hotel which specializes in such and go there and enjoy! Many of our English friends do just that. Cheers, Pat in Baltimore
