Christmas Lights in Port Ellen, Islay

Islay Events written in stencil

Well, well, finally West Berkshire has caught up with Islay and we've had some proper snow even in West Berkshire. In other news Carlos Tevez was spotted on Islay (presumably he had some time on his hands with many games cancelled) and more Islay snow pictures were taken. But that's not what I'm going to blog tonight. Instead a picture I deliberately left out from the Port Ellen snow pictures last night:

Christmas Day is now exactly a week away, so I thought I post the picture this evening, not yesterday (although for my German readers Heiligabend, Christmas Evening, is the big event). The picture shows Carol Singers around the tree in Port Ellen when the lights were switched on, a nice cooperation between the distilleries there. The lights are courtesy of Diageo (Lagavulin, Port Ellen Maltings, Caol Ila) while the tree is from Laphroaig. The people are of course from Islay (may be with a few visitors mixed in).

That's all I have for today, I hope you're having a nice weekend before the big Christmas weekend.
