The Largest Advent Calendar in the World

Shot with Olympus E510
And who am I to argue? This weekend, I visited St Pancras International Station, on Saturday on my Snap'n'Cycle tour, but I came back on Sunday with Mrs Ham, because it seemed like a nice thing to do.

The Diamond Geezer has provided coverage yesterday and on two previous occasions, which content should satisfy the most demanding. I'll do the photos.

(For anyone that's wondering, a new window opens each day on the wall facing.)

That was a nice thing to do, Ham. Did you ask the nice PC Plod to pose or was he obligingly there already?
Great calendar. Does it rain chocs each day?

Well, its an ok calendar I suppose but its got a long way to go to beat my Doctor Who one! ;)

Thanks for the mention, Mr Ham, of my own SPI entries from November 11

Hi Ham - at some point you should hove your way down to Greenwich for their Live Advent Calendar - every day, one of 24 of the good burghers of St Alfege's parish opens their curtains to reveal a festive scene, building up to a walk you can do on Christmas eve around all the windows...

Lynn, I was looking for a way to make the shot interesting, when this Community Officer did his community thing. Not sure he knew, exactly....

Marley - I'd have gone for the Who, too.

Sam - the words just spring from his mouth

zsolt - thanks

Sally - nice one

GP - Thanks, it's on the list now.

Carl - looks to me like it's a close call .... that is bi-i-i-g. But as DG says, it is almost certainly the largest advert calendar.

Very opportune then Ham. They are useful for something then. Oooh controversial, controversial...
