We are living in London since two years and every week we are visiting or discovering a new place in this city but there are still plenty of places we didn’t visit yet. Geffrye Museum where we’ve been yesterday was one of them. That’s why, when we were leaving the house we decided to be there two hours earlier then the event and visit the museum also.

Geffrye Museum is located at Kingsland Road no:136, in a beautiful building with a big garden and is a perfect place to see diffrent styles of British living, decorations and furnitures of different periods since 1630.

Because of the christmas, each room was decorated with the ornaments and style of the period and again beacuse of the British tradition of keeping the christmas decorations until the Twelfth Night of Christmas, we could have the chance to see them yesterday and then to be part of the one of the oldest British christmas traditions which is burning the holly and the ivy to avoid the bad luck.

After celebrating the Twelfth Night with carols, mulled wine and cake around the fire, the smell of the fire made us feel hungry for a Turkish barbecue and we found ourselves at Mangal, the smallest and the first restaurant of the chain at Arcola Street no:10 in Dalston. Yummy!

Christmas lights001 Oxford Street

Christmas Day morning we woke up at five o’clock in the morning for going to watch christmas swimmers in Serpentine in Hyde Park.

Last year, when we were walking there, we were quite surprised to see Oxford Street totally empty for the first time. This year was the same.

So, we enjoyed the emptiness of the main, busiest and most popular streets of London and took some christmas lights photos. The photo above, is taken at 7.30 o’clock in the morning in Oxford Street.
