Joel looks like a cartoon Disney prince charming
Rebecca Marcus
Yes I did get the chocolate coins in my Christmas stocking. And I'm from the US.
Sharon Smith
The chocolate coins are also a Hanukah tradition. Hanukah gelt. not sure I spelled that correctly.
Katie Hahn
The amount of will power y’all have is highly Impressive!! There is no way I’d get out of there without at least three pieces of that cake and a ball full of those truffles in tow. 😂

This video brought back so many good memories of when I was in London. Loved Harrod's Food Court. I almost bought a table cloth for $600.00 U.S., but remembered my dear friends who I nicknamed 'The Winestains'. Yes we have gold coins and Christmas poppers, and thank goodness NO Christmas pudding. Also love F&M afternoon tea with shortbread & icing. Great video guys and looking forward to tomorrow.

Gold coins or gilda is very popular as a gift during Hanukkah and is often used to place bets when playing dreidel. [Note to parents:  Don't put gold coins in stockings hung by the chimney with care if the fire is ablaze; you'll have a mess in the morning.]
Lisa B
Harrods is lovely. Thank you for taking us on a tour!
Erin
We wish you a Merry Vlogmas!!!! 🎵🎶🎼

American here. We do chocolate coins and many people do an orange or other sweet citrus in the stocking.
Hi. I’m Ken!
This gives me life!! I love London, and I’ve spent way too much money in Harrod’s!

Joel, I also love wrapping paper! I enjoy picking out a couple of different papers that compliment one other. I wrap my family's gifts in one style paper & my husband's family's gifts in another. This makes it much simpler when we grab one family's gifts, when taking them to our family Christmas get-togethers.

I love Christmas, and I've always wanted to visit Harrod's, thanks for sharing! :)
James Brown
Yes! Always had "coins" in my stocking. However, they obviously were never as artfully packaged as the Harrod's little bags. My memory is that my coins were supposed to be "pirate loot." Also, have always had a tiger on the Christmas Tree. This has been by way of being a fan of LSU--Louisiana State University. Geaux Tigers!!!
Toni Ferrazza
LOVE Harrods. AND the both of you. Happy Christmas.
cool music
Yea, we have money coin candy in the us, also candy that looks like a lump of coal if you've been naughty. 😄
Kat Eyed Gurl
Lia, love your makeup today especially lip color although you always look great. Love the enthusiasm you both share. Gives me a smile to watch your vids, thank you.
Janine Perkins
This is going to be fun, seeing you everyday this month instead of "Thrice Weekly". You started off with a bang guys!! I've only driven by Harrah's on vacation. YOU got me in the door! Their cakes look amazing. Yes please! ◇♡◇
Emily Batemon
I recently found your videos while preparing for a trip to London and now I'm obsessed! I'll be in London in April if y'all would like to meet some tourists from Alabama, or as Joel says, "Alabauma"!
Stephani

Mustafa needs to become a recurring character. 😁 FYI There was a musical made for American TV in the mid-60s called “Evening Primrose” about people who secretly live in a department store. They hide during the day and come out to do their thing at night among the fabulous displays. Stephen Sondheim wrote the music, starring Anthony Perkins and Charmian Carr. 🥰 The songs have been recorded many times and I think a DVD of the show can be had from some dark corner of the internet.
Caitlin Gonzalez
What is Christmas pudding, and what are mince pies? I've always wanted to know lol. And yes, Americans have the chocolate coins too!
Nancy E Heath
Wonderful! Half of my family that's Jewish uses the coins during Hanukkah
Miranda Gartner
I love that you call ornaments, "baubles". I like that word. 😍

Loved this so much! I want a London trip during Christmas!

arjaygee
What fun! I haven't been to Harrods for years, and never at Christmas. Thanks! When I was a child, we used to get gold foil-covered coins in our stockings here in the US. Joel, I used to get excited about wrapping paper, too. I got a kick out of Lia channeling her inner doorman.
Invixious Nefarious
Just a heads-up. The new intro music is blowing my speakers off the desk. VERY LOUD! :) Prosecco Gummies?? I want some.
PrettyInPink Crafts
I love that doorman.... He is so adorable!

Cheapskate Legends ;-)
Michael Mullard
American reacting to Food Court at Harrod’s: Wow! Stunning. But the prices?? Wow! Stunnning! 80 pounds for a cake and 49 pounds for a pie. That’s unreal!
Annemay Seyfried
We grew up w/choc $ in Holland, too!
CHECHECHANNEL Chelsea
This video has me so excited for my winter london trip once I'm done with finals! Thanks for sharing ^_^

Mistie Medendorp
Loving the Vlogmas so far! Loved seeing Harrods. I didn't get to go when I visited London in 2006. 😢
Karen Wingler
Harrod’s is one place I’ve ALWAYS wanted to see! Thanks for the tour!! xoxo

Cathe Tenorio
Yes we have the coins we give in stockings at Christmas.
Clipstone Films
£6.50 a slice of Pumpkin Pie! I'll pass, thanks.
Emilie Miles
Hi Joel and lia I love your vids they have been helping me get through tough things at the moment xxx LYSM xxxxxx
Deb Merced
The doorman was great!! What is in Christmas pudding?
Sue Nuckles
Yes, we have the coin-shaped chocolate wrapped in gold foil. We're not backward. I haven't seen a cafe with stools at the bar in a department store since the 1960s. How old-fashioned. I've never seen a security guard in that kind of uniform, ever, & I'm 70 yo. Window displays started in America.
Mark
Thanks for sharing London at Christmas with us.It is so beautiful! I lived for a brief time in High Wycombe when I was a child and still have such great memories of England!
Sarah Daggett
I got chocolate coins every year on St. Nicholas day.
Jamie Teems
I used to get Chocolate Coins in my stocking every year when I was growing up all the way back in the 60's & 70's. Harrod's is a Beautiful Store.
Raymond Barry
I absolutely loved shopping at Harrods when I visited London. We had high tea, bought lots of gifts to bring back and visited the Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed memorial in the Egyptian escalator. Christmas at Harrods must be amazing.
Melanie D
Fun video! American here who gets those coins in stocking, even still last year as an adult😊 Loved the doorman too! Good Christmas vibes to all🎄💗
Victoria Norris
Thank you for the tour! I've never been to Harrod's!
Sharon Shade
OMG, Harrod’s looks amazing.
Shawn Marie
Thank you SO much for taking us on a little tour of Harrods! I studied in London one semester, and kept putting off visiting there. Time ran out, and I never made it :( Christopher was so cute ❤️ Very difficult to understand what he was saying, due to his accent - lol
roxyalice04
Thanks for the tour, the doorman made my day. What a light soul.
Katie Pitkin
I had to rewind.. totally distracted by "Brandy butter" 😋
beckiewiththegoodhair
bahahaha you have a carrots shirt. When I think of carrots I think of Anne of Green Gables.
Brandon McClellan
Wow everything at that store just screams fancy! That doorman seemed so happy to talk with you guys! Loved it!
Rafael Cárcamo-V
What a wonderful video. Completely loved it! As for the gold coins, it is something I grew up with here in the states. One year, when I was little, an uncle played with all of us cousin's mind because he put both gold coins and the chocolate Coles in the stockings. I remember we were all confused. Then one of my cousin's said, "makes sense, that explains my year."😃 But, just an FYI, the whole coin tradition originated in what is now Turkey. So, it is something practiced mainly in Europe. But, many of my friends also grew up with the chocolate coins in their stockings and others for Hanukkah.☺
Jennifer Anderson
Harrods is so beautiful! I love truffles 😋 In America, we have foil covered chocolate that looks like coins. The chocolate is not that good, but as a child, chocolate is chocolate. We get picky as adults. I wish we had Christmas crackers. Oooooh, that elephant has a very long.........trunk 😘
Corelidi Kiplinge
Feeling so special for the reply! Thx loves!
Thomas Mann
I've always wanted to go to Harrod's but never made it. We've been to London a few times, but always on a tight tour schedule. I enjoyed your excursion. Thank you.
Heather Jones
Loved the choc coins in the Christmas stocking!! We do the Christmas Crackers at Christmas Breakfast. This year we went with the premium version. I hope we still have our paper crowns!
Chelsea C
Omg the Gold coins! We had the mesh bags in our stockings every year!!
Tammy Eckert
