Christmas Piccadilly

Dear Diary,

London has already welcomed Christmas somewhere in the middle of November, or maybe even earlier. The atmosphere is so festive and I`m constantly counting-down the days until Xmas (23 days left) 
What grasped my attention a few days ago was the giant Xmas crystal ball that surrounds Eros in Piccadilly Circus.

Piccadilly Circus is a road junction and public space of London's West End in the City of Westminster, built in 1819 to connect Regent Street with the major shopping street of Piccadilly. In this context, a circus, from the Latin word meaning "circle", is a round open space at a street junction.

Its status as a major traffic intersection has made Piccadilly Circus a busy meeting place and a tourist attraction in its own right. 
The Circus is particularly known for its video display and neon signs mounted on the corner building on the northern side, as well as the Shaftesbury memorial fountain and statue of Eros. It is surrounded by several noted buildings, including the London Pavilion and Criterion Theater. Directly underneath the plaza is Piccadilly Circus tube station, part of the London Underground system.

More Xmas settings are coming soon!
Take care!
