I'm not sure what it is about us and snow, but whenever we travel back to the UK it always seems to turn into a winter wonderland.
Covent Garden's topiary Rudolph
In between the snow, roaming the icy cold streets of London, I managed to take a few highlights of the festive sights around London's Covent Garden and along the South Bank.
Christmas Tree in Covent Garden Plaza
Sadly a problem with my camera prevented me from taking lots of photos this trip, so you are spared a multitude of festive shots, just enjoy these handpicked gems.
London's South Bank festive lights
Aside from some traffic delays caused by the inclement weather (closing the bridge again between England and Wales), we enjoyed our whirlwind visit to see friends and family.
We were rewarded for our travel problems with an early Christmas present of an upgrade to First Class on our return journey to L.A. Not a bad way to start celebrating the Holidays.
Merry Christmas everyone...
