It’s Christmas this weekend – and though we have our own very American activities that are considered essential to properly celebrating this holiday (tacky lights tours, anyone? Just me?), we might do well to consider adopting a few of traditions that are popular in Great Britain at this time of year. (I vote for adding in Christmas telly and Boxing Day off for my part, but feel free to disagree with me in the comments.)
Click through for some tidbits on what makes Christmas in the UK special – feel free to chime in if you think something vital has been left off of the list, or if you know a place in America where someone might easily be able to get a bulk order of Christmas crackers for next year. Or both!
