Balls and Baubles in Mayfair

Christmas baubles come in many colours.  In one shop, Mont Blanc pens are displayed beside red balls and Christmas greetings.  Especially for Japanese readers, there is a clear メリークリスマス above the balls.

There seems to be a trend towards blue in New Bond Street.

The green ball was part of Rolex’s Christmas decorations.

The purple and gold combination looks exciting, but would be better without my reflection!

    I like these Christmas tree balls. When I first went to a Hindu temple here I saw a whole lot of shiny Christmas tree balls used as decorations for the “mandir”. I thought using Christmas ornaments was quite funny until I thought about which religion is actually older – and then it occurred to me that it is very likely that what we think of as “Christmas” ornaments might well have originated in India. hug hug
