The countdown to Christmas really begins when lovers of the seasonal time will assemble at the corner of Old Bond Street and Burlington Gardens tonight for Bond Noel - the annual Bond Street Christmas light switch on.
There will be reindeer, christmas trees, carol singers and snow all the way down Bond Street and an as yet unnames special guest to do the honours of turning on the lights. It should be quite an event so pop along and get into the Christmas spirit. There's also going to be a luxury tombola in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Bond Noel lasts from 5pm until 8pm, with the switch on scheduled for 6pm.
UPDATE: The unnamed celebrity turned out to be Miss Kelly Brook! There's some great pictures of the event on Flickr...
