For anyone who, like me, gets clinically depressed in the run-up to ‘Xmas’, I’m starting a listicle of Christmas-free zones in Stroud Green as of today. Christmas is not for another two weeks. By ‘Christmas-safe' I mean no annoying Winter Wonderland music and the minimum of decorations. In other words - normal.
First two nominations:
1. Front Room Cafe. No Bing Crosby and decorations not up yet.
2. Park Theatre Cafe. No sign of tinsel yet and decent background playlist.
Further suggestions? (Nominations for places to avoid also accepted - other than Tesco, obv.)
