Christmas Festival at Cheonggyecheon Stream

As we began walking we were greeted by a collection of multi-colored and bright Christmas lights, each area were adorned by different Christmas themes and artsy decorations.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Still can't believe we are celebrating it in a different country

Hope Lanterns
As we walked further we came across this booth selling Hope Lanterns for 3,000 won (P120) each where you write down all your prayers for the coming years.

We listed down all the things we were thankful for and all our prayers for the years ahead.

When we're finally finished we let it float along the river joining all the Hope Lanterns together. 

Here you go

We continued our freezing stroll and we just can't help falling in love with all the magnificent displays. So yeah, pictures were abundant too.

We ended our walk at the waterfalls area near City Hall Exit 4. The sound of it was so calming.

And just right after this shot the lights went off. It's already 10pm. ktnxbye.

Walking along the stream is like walking in a fairytale-like ambiance, the darkness of the whole stretch is in remarkable contrast with the flood of magical lights as if we were in a dream.
