Event | Cabot Circus Christmas lights 2018

Now that Halloween and Bonfire Night are out of the way, we're quite happy to get going on Christmas festivities. And how are we going to kick off this year's festive season? You might well ask. On Friday night, we're heading to Cabot Circus, Bristol's shopping centre, for the event of the season. Cabot always seems to have something on to rescue even the most perfunctory of family shopping trips and Christmas is where it turns on the style.

Now, we are BIG Christmas fans in this house, flirting briefly with the prospect of a festive wedding this year (still mourning that one). Our tree is always the biggest tree. We're always Pinning Christmas tree tattoos. Yes, we plan Christmas Eve meticulously, our Christmas morning breakfast is always one to remember and the festivities last for days and days and days. WE LOVE CHRISTMAS!

But I've never been to a Christmas lights switch-on. Even a passing ex-Girls Aloud member and promise of boozy hot chocolate hasn't been enough to tempt me. Too bright. Too mercenary. Too much not how I'd do it, if truth be told.

But a Latino Christmas? Now we're talking! Piñatas! Carnival performances! Mariarchi tunes (fingers crossed)! Yes, this year Cabot Circus will be launching Christmas with a Latino-inspired festive fiesta for all the family to celebrate the beginning of the Christmas shopping season and the beginning of the Broadmead Christmas markets.

Don't worry, it'll still be traditional for those who want fake snow and fairy lights. This year promises a brand new set of Christmas lights complete with Christmas themed selfies and, a little elf tells us, twinkly reindeer. Sprogs definitely need to bring their Christmas wish lists with them to pay Santa a visit in the brand-new Santa’s Grotto in Quakers Friars.

But for us? A Latino Christmas! How cool?! Hopefully very, and we'll report back next Friday when we head down for the beginning of this season's festive fun. We'll be the ones in the tinsel sombreros!
