It's always nice to reminisce one of the interesting cities I visited in England. I am grateful and will always thank my good friend and "kababayan" (a Filipino word that can be translated as compatriots) named Ros or Arot for touring me in this city. It was in autumn or fall 2008 when I had the chance to visit England for 3 weeks. One of the cities I visited was Leeds.
I did not made it to witness the Christmas market in Leeds but I was in the area where it is held every year. It was still did not opened when I was there. Like any other Christmas markets in the UK, it is also a traditional German Christmas Market. It is saying, "A little piece of Germany in the heart of Leeds City Center". At least, I did experienced the illuminated lights on the streets and the colourful Christmas trees inside the famous Victoria Quarter and other shops in this city. The festive atmosphere of the coming holiday season can already be felt at the month of November.
