It might still be 45 days until we're tucking into our turkey but the festive season is officially underway in our fair city.
Dublin's Christmas lights started appearing on our streets at the beginning of November but it was only yesterday evening that Dubliners got to see them illuminated in all their glory. While it was more of a low-key affair than usual this year, the photo opportunities are now open for business and plenty of people have been taking advantage already.
All we need now is some mulled wine and a spin of Fairytale Of New York. Where has the year gone at all?
