Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Shettleston Christmas in January

I had to go into Glasgow yesterday, and given it was 18 January 2017, I was fairly impressed by the near complete clearance of all the Christmas lights and decorations, recalling how large and complex some had been.

The only remains I could see were a few of the elevated decorations in George Square, and even these were removal ‘work in progress’, and understandable considering the other extensive work currently taking place there, to restore the square to its one greener appearance as the grassed areas are being reinstated to replace the more recent expanse of assorted tarmac which were laid in more recent times.

I was late back, so had the pleasure of walking through Shettleston…

And seeing that two of the three lighting installations were still shining brightly in the night:

A few years back I saw a house in Baillieston with a lit Christmas tree on show until April – although I don’t think it would have been deliberate, but never found out the reason behind.

Wonder if these will still be up and lit the next time I’m passing in the night?
