London Comes Alive for the Holidays

Now is the perfect time to find discount airfare to London for the holidays.

Around the holidays, London’s West End is an especially festive spot. This year’s festivities bring in the 21st century with the addition of a some digital interactivity, right in the middle of Covent Garden.

The lights for the main Christmas tree at Covent Garden are programmed to respond to human touch, so when two people lock lips underneath a sprig of mistletoe a cascade of 50,000 red and white pulsing LED lights illuminate the entire 50-foot tree. Designed and engineered by Paul Cocksedge, this nightly event is free to all who wish to participate (donations to a selected charity are requested).

Covent Garden is also hosting International Kiss Day. Foreigners living in or visiting London can have their kiss, plus a personal message, filmed, and event organizers will e-mail it to their family anywhere in the world (also for free).

The rest of the marketplace are hosting various events through the end of December. Choral performances set the mood with seasonal numbers and Thursday’s famous Real Food Market has many of the traditional winter foods at their stalls, from mincemeat pies to fresh oysters.
