Santa Special

Saltaire Living Advent Calendar 2016 - So... it's that time of year again, when the village of Saltaire turns itself into a living Advent calendar, to count down to Christmas. Every day in December, one new window is unveiled, until by Christmas Eve the streets are glowing with lights and artwork. The windows are in houses and businesses across the village and the trail can be followed with the aid of a map (available here).  This has been a tradition since 2006 and gets better and better every year. It even got a mention on the Chris Evan's Breakfast show on BBC radio this year. For more information and pictures of all the windows, look at the Facebook page here.

This lovely display was one of the first to be lit, at 24 Fanny Street.  It depicts the nearby Shipley Glen Tramway, which runs Santa Specials on December weekends, a lovely treat for young children.
