The Londonist Alphabet Game: Silly Things To Do In The Snow

We asked our Facebook friends to suggest really stupid things to do in London when it snows, in the hope of getting at least one suggestion for each letter of the alphabet. Here are our 26 favourite suggestions. Check out the Facebook page for further nonsense.

This week, we didn’t get responses for every letter. So where you see ‘(Londonist)’, it’s our own suggestion. Feel free to come up with something better in the comments.
