Today town council staff were recycling Christmas Trees on Abingdon Market Place.
The large Market Place tree usually gets chopped up and recycled on this Saturday. But not this year. It still stands there before the County Hall.
The Christmas Lights are still on this evening in town. It could be their last night. Or that could be tomorrow.
The dripping lights along the High Street have been impressive this year.
There have also been lots of ice cream cone decorations about the town centre.
The Candles on the Market Place have been there for about fifteen years, and should get a longevity award.
Bury Street were the first to turn their lights on, and could be the last of the Christmas Lights to be turned off this year.
Exbourne Road, in Abingdon, have celebrated annual Street Parties for the last nine years and this year they also have Advent Windows. One is unveiled each evening.
Being ground-floor terrace-house windows they can be viewed close up.
On South Avenue there are a lot of houses and there is some duplication of numbers. On Exbourne Road there are fewer houses and some feature two days.
Displays can be seen during the day
and during the night.
Thankyou to everybody for their comments. Merry Christmas.
The Abingdon Operatic Society were singing carols outside the Abingdon Community Freespace Shop this morning.
Father Christmas was inside the shop. The Abingdon Lions have taken him all round the estates of Abingdon.
On the Market Place the Salvation Army were playing and singing carols.
It was a gorgeous morning. The sun was shining, after yesterday’s rain, and the Rivers were quite high.
The South Avenue Advent Windows are back. More houses than ever have taken part this year. Some numbers are doubled up. If you go to look round you can drop in a donation for the Helen and Douglas House Hospice through some letter boxes. Or view The Helen and Douglas House Christmas Appeal.
