Christmas 2009

Glasgow had a great tradition of Christmas displays in the large department store windows. There were also many streets with Christmas lights. Someone recently posted some old photos which showed the street lights.

I have some photos of the Christmas decorations in Buchanan Galleries and St Enoch's. Will try and get more before Christmas and may even try and get some window displays as well.

Any one got any others?

Hopefully the security will be a whole lot more tolerant this year than just branding everyone with a camera terrorist pedophiles whilst they lean on the rails oggling the young girls...
Last year was a joke

All three of them.

Christmas

Oh I do miss my white xmas.  Even though I have been in Australia for the last 46 years I still can't get used to a hot hot xmas.  We still stick to our traditional roast xmas dinner and plum pudding.  Would love to see more photos of a white xmas.

Merry xmas to all.
