For many people, Christmas means presents, turkeys, Father Christmas and maybe even Jesus. For me, my favourite part has always been the lights. And maybe Mariah Carey’s all-time best song (no, not Dream Lover).
This year, the Arcades are looking as gorgeous as ever, with an array of lights to really heighten the festive cheer of the shoppers inside. I think the Morgan and Royal Arcades have really gone all out this year, and a visit to Cardiff this December wouldn’t be complete without a wander through the arcades to check them out.
I assume they’ll be staying up for the whole of the festive period, so even if you’re reading this in the days after Jesus’s birthday, you’ve still got time to go and have a look. If you don’t have time, see the pictures in this post. It’s not as good as being there, but it’s a reasonably close approximation. P.S. You can start a slideshow by clicking on any of the pictures if you want to see them bigger.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thanks for all the great photos!
