It comes but once a year. Cardiff’s Christmas wonderland opened for business on Friday the 23rd November. Opening later than expected due to torrential rains and high winds, business was slow going. I cycled past at around 17.45, through a small crowd being entertained by the No-fit-state circus. Shoppers returned to their cars. The poor lass selling tickets at the ‘Specatacular 60 star ride’ was waiting for custom. Tumbleweed lay sodden in large puddles. It will take a few days of prolonged dry weather to tempt Cardiffians back onto the streets.
The No-fit-state circus incidentally, were very good. Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland is open from Friday the 23rd November to January the 6th.
