I enjoy all the comments I receive, and sometimes they lead me down the trail to another post. One like that came in this morning, when blogger, Nixy43 (aka, Helen Nix) left a note on my recent post, Humbug Revisited: http://wp.me/pYql4-1sF.
Ms Nix, a Londoner, is compiling a detailed list of 1000 interesting things to do in London for less than a tenner. Any idiot can enjoy London on a large bankroll, she says, but it’s not so easy for the frugal tourist or people who live there. She sent me a link to her marvelous post, “Thing 86: Enjoy a literary evening at Foyles and bond with Dickens at Christmas.” http://wp.me/p1I6Mp-5m
There is much information about Dicken’s, about changing attitudes to Christmas when he wrote A Christmas Carol, and links to much information about this classic. London is gearing up for an all out celebration of Dicken’s in 2012, the 200th anniversary of his birth, so if there is any chance you will visit next year, this post is a must.
Stop by, enjoy the story, and thank Helen for posting it!
