With Christmas just around the corner, I’ve been busking some Christmas songs and feeling very festive amongst the Southbank Christmas Market.
While the London Eye and it’s surrounding areas are not shy about the holiday spirit, it’s not so easy to spread Christmas joy in London. Specifically on the tube, people are not feeling so festive, take that from a busker down in the trenches. Our local dialect in London is complete silence with minimal eye contract, and I’ve received many a disapproving eye roll for singing Christmas songs on the London Underground, despite Christmas being a mere 2 weeks away! . But I’m doing my best to spread Christmas cheer, singing loud for all to hear.
As the weather has turned undeniably cold I’ll be hibernating and busking on the London Underground on rainy days or cold days (below 5 degrees C). But I’ll be on the southbank as my first port of call on the following days, please do come along and say hello!
Merry Christmas London!
