Hot wine and a cold Christmas
Words and images by Pamela Wade
Cold, wet and dark…at half-past three…in the afternoon! Doesn’t sound like much of a holiday, does it? But add in cinnamon and cloves, sparkling lights, music, mulled wine, hot food and pretty things to buy, plus Christmas excitement, and it becomes something else entirely. That’s not all though: factor in a luxurious cruise along a historic river, and all the ingredients are in place for a unique holiday that stays in the memory forever.
