Christmas Carols and a Non-Christmas Party

The Boy Child and I met up with our Norwegian friends yesterday and headed into town. 
Central London on a Saturday afternoon in December? 
Fear not, for we managed to avoid the worst of the crowds by heading to Trafalgar Square to see the Nation's Christmas tree (thank you, lovely Norway) and sing Carols at a family friendly event at St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
 The mid-afternoon light was stunning, if fleeting.
It also looked pretty good when reflected.
The Carol Concert was a fabulous way to bring classical music alive for 4-12 year-olds.  The hour became a journey of discovery, imagination and inspiration.
We loved it and it's going to be something else I add to our Christmas Traditions list.
We had to hot foot if home as soon as the Concert was over, because we had a significant number birthday party to attend.
A party worth dressing up for.
 A party where The Boy Child was welcome and had friends to play with. 
A party where we were pretty much the last to leave.

Yeah for missing the crowds - I always try to get to see the tree. Watched an episode with Nigel Slater about how it is chosen one year.
