    Background: LONDON'S CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS WERE SWITCHED ON TONIGHT (THURSDAY). THE DUCHESS OF BEDFORD TURNED A SWITCH TO LIGHT UP THE DECORATIONS.

    FOR THE NEXT MONTH, OXFORD STREET -- THE HEADQUARTERS OF LONDON'S GREAT SHOPPING EMPORIUMS -- WILL BE A BLAZE OF COLOUR. A MILE OF GIANT COLOURED CANDLES, DRAPES OF LIGHTS AND GLITTERING HALOS, THE DECORATIONS ARE A RESULT OF TEN MONTHS OF INTENSIVE PREPARATIONS.

    THE DECORATIONS EXTEND INTO REGENT STREET, WHICH ARCS SOUTH OFF OXFORD STREET TO PICCADILLY CIRCUS. GIANT FIBREGLASS REINDEER HELP PROVIDE THE FESTIVE ATMOSPHERE AS LONDON PREPARES ITSELF FOR THE "SEASON OF GOODWILL."
    FOR BOTH STREETS, THE COST OF THE DECORATIONS WAS FINANCED BY LOCAL TRADERS.
