One of our favourite things about Roman Road is how everyone – cafes, shops and houses alike – gets into the Christmas spirit.
You may have spotted the window illustrations on Cafe East, adding a festive cheer to the perma-queue outside.
Or perhaps you have been admiring the neon stars, presents, and Christmas ornaments festooning the length of Roman Road?
Even residents are getting into the spirit: every year we are impressed with the many beautifully decked out houses we spotted out and about, and this year seems to be a bumper crop.
There were all manner of light displays: from tiny fairy lights delicately glittering on roof-tops, to maximalist, colourful displays that you can’t help but stop and admire.
