Last night AJ (my boyfriend) and I decided we’d go and see the switch on of the Oxford Street Christmas lights. We did a little shopping before hand and then wandered down to John Lewis for 5 o’clock when the event was about to take place! We severely underestimated how busy it would be, I didn’t realise it would be such a big event with such a massive crowd! We tried to get closer to the stage but we ended up getting crushed in a massive crowd! We decided we’d walk back to some more open space! By the time we’d found open space we couldn’t even hear the performers anymore, Rixton opened the show and then Neon Jungle and Jess Glyne performed, not that we saw or heard any of it!
We decided we’d have a look around John Lewis until it was time for the lights to be turned on! I always forget what a lovely experience John Lewis is, I love it in there! Especially now all the Christmas bits are out! I’m so excited! Christmas is my favourite time of the year!
We went outside at 6 and did the countdown with Cheryl, and then the lights came on and they looked absolutely stunning, the whole length of Oxford Street both ways was covered in beautiful lit up balls (the same as last year because they were so popular). Even though we didn’t get to see/hear any performances it was well worth going as I’m now feeling very festive!
Did any of you go to the turn on? Are you feeling in the Christmas spirit yet?
