There doesn't seem to be much to look forward to just now, so today we look back on a much happier time.

Usually at this time of year it's all about social gatherings and events that draw people in their hundreds.

Sadly we have not seen much of that not only during this festive season but throughout the year.

Did you see the Wrexham Santa parade, 1982?

But it certainly wasn't always this way, as this set of photos from the archive highlight.

They show the joy of another Christmas parade, this time the annual Round Table Christmas spectacle, in Wrexham, December 1990.

Can you spot yourself, family or friends?

You can see more of our nostalgia galleries in our Local Bygones section.
