the build up to Christmas … lights in Copenhagen

 

In the weeks before Christmas, the streets of Copenhagen are busy with the bustle of shoppers, an amazing number of Christmas Fairs, food stalls on squares and street corners, traditional children’s carousels and the lights of street decorations, and the stalls selling Christmas trees and of course there is Israels Plads with its food halls and the Christmas display across the front of the Hotel D’Angleterre on Kongens Nytorv … this year with a pretty impressive cast of polar bears. All we really need now is snow.
