  • Description

    THE APPROACH OF CHRISTMAS WAS MARKED IN LONDON, U.K., ON NOVEMBER 23, BY THE SWITCHING ON OF ILLUMINATED DECORATIONS IN OXFORD STREET, OFTEN CALLED "THE GREATEST SHOPPING STREET IN THE WORLD."
    ALTHOUGH THE DECORATIONS, HUNDREDS OF HUGE CHRISTMAS TREES, DREW CROWDS INTO LONDON'S WEST END, THE GLITTER AND THE COLOURFUL LIGHTS COULD NOT DISTRACT THE CHILDREN FROM THEIR FAVOURITE SEASONAL OCCUPATION OF PICKING CHRISTMAS PRESENTS FROM THE GAILY DECORATED SHOP WINDOWS.

    ORGANISED BY THE OXFORD STREET ASSOCIATION, THE DECORATIONS ARE MADE BY SPRAYING LIQUID PLASTIC ONTO WIRE FRAMES. THEY ARE THEN SUSPENDED ACROSS THE 75 FEET WIDE STREET.
