22 Nov 2013.It is a rare scene! But not in the UK. Every year scores of thousands gather along the streets of Oxford (and in many other places, too) to see the children parading with Christmas lights, tableaux, band, etc. Even in freezing cold, you see people waiting to get a glimpse!
It is a good business opportunity too – as thousands of vendors pitch their tents along the streets to prepare and sell goodies!
Along with me were Alejandro Olayo of (Mexico, now) Oregon and Vijay D’Souza (India)
