A quiet season

I’m convinced that London life moves in cycles, with the streets and pubs feeling deserted on some weekends, and everyone out on the pavements on others.

This holiday season seems to have fallen into a trough of this wave. Halloween sometime starts a month-long endless fireworks show, with Diwali and Bonfire night. This year was almost quiet in comparison with some.

Plans for New Year among my friends are all pretty lax–everyone is taking this year off. This afternoon people were out shopping, but the pub that would usually be thronged for Sunday lunch was half-empty.

Am I the only one who’s finding that this New Year is a quiet one? Let me know in the comments if you have some amazing plans for a New Year night out.

    My friends seem to say the opposite — a couple of months ago, I went to a private underground club where people were illegally smoking and lots of people left early because they had gotten used to clear air and no stinky clothes and hair.

    Even my smoker friends seem to prefer the atmosphere post-ban! Interesting.
