Increadible Crowds for Holiday Shopping

The streets of London – particularly Central London – get ridiculously busy in December as people buy their gifts for Saturnalia. Oxford Street and Regent Street were both closed this weekend to accommodate the crowds.

Here are two pictures taken at Oxford Circus. One facing one direction:

Carnaby Street was busy as usual, and had some new decorations up for the holidays:

We did most of our shopping online this year, but it’s great to go out and see the crowds! I love this city.
