Who appears in Christmas parades in Aberdeen?

Santa in a kilt with a Storm Trooper, of course. Who else?


It was the Turning on the Lights Christmas parade in Aberdeen last Sunday. There was a parade; they marched; lights went on. It was really good! I think everyone in Aberdeen was there as Union Street was packed.

I’ve changed themes on my blog again. WordPress.com have a Black Friday special this weekend where if you upgrade to Premium, you get unlimited Premium themes for a year for free. So now I have another excuse to change themes: I want to test out all the Premium themes. I hope I don’t drive you nuts.
