Despite struggling with the darkness and cold of winter, Brighton is a cool place to be all year round ...
On Saturday I got a surprise when I walked along the seafront and saw an army of running (and walking) Santas! It was the yearly Santa Dash - a 5km run fom charity. (Maybe I'll join in next year, James!)
Every night until Xmas a new beach hut is opened up like an advent calender and there's free mulled wine and mince pies. Each hut has also got a carol which the decorations are based on.
Lastly ... a December sunset is just as beautiful as a summery one.
