December 24th: Canterbury tales
Christmas Eve and it was over to historic Canterbury to see what changes had been made to the city centre and also to watch people doing their last minute Christmas shopping.
It was fun seeing some of the old familiar places such as Weavers and the ducking stool, the Cathedral and so on.
In the early evening we joined the masses in the pedestrian area for the Community Carol Service, which, unbeknown to me, has been taking place for some years, and it usually has the Archbishop of Canterbury in attendance. It was an interesting, but chilly experience, and so the suggestion of mulled wine and nibbles at my sister's back in Dover in the evening was most welcome.
