Trafalgar Square Holds It First Ever Christmas Market This Year

Is it just us, or does London get more Christmassy with each passing year?

The latest Chrimbo addition for 2019, upping the ante ever so slightly, is a new Christmas market in Trafalgar Square. The market sits on the North Terrace of the square — just in front of the National Gallery — and is open now.

Of all the places that were yet to be Christmas-ified, this is actually a rather logical one to receive a Christmas market. It's the home of the whopping Christmas tree throughout December, with carol singers standing beneath it serenading the crowds in the biting winter air. Now there's finally somewhere to pick up some mulled wine to warm you up while you watch.

Even the tree itself is tweeting about the market. Although what "firtos" are is anyone's guess. Maybe they don't focus on spelling at tree school.
