X is for Xmas

There is not much to say about the letter X. Not many words start with an x, the letter is more commonly used in mathemetical calculations and it gives you quite good points with scrabble if you go beyond the 3 letter word! In recent year, Xmas has become a popular way of writing about … Continue reading »

W is for Weather

The saying goes that nobody talks as much about the weather as the Brits. Having lived here for several years now I can understand why.

U is for Unwrapping

The only thing that children want to do with Christmas is unwrapping their presents. For days they have been looking excitingly at the tree, waiting for presents to appear.

Tulips might not be the first flower that comes to mind when thinking about Christmas, but many bouquets will contain these famous Dutch flowers. Most commonly they will be red or white, but there are many other varieties and colours available. It is a bit rare to get tulips in the winter as they normally … Continue reading »

S is for Snow

The best Christmas for me is waking up early in the morning, opening the curtains and see everything covered in a layer of snow. Not that I am such a snow fan, but it just adds that little bit of magic to the day. It also means you appreciate a warm house and good food … Continue reading »

Q is for Quaint

How can you realistically write an article about the letter Q in relation to Christmas? Let’s have some facts first. Q, the 17th letter in the English alphabet, is the second most rarely used letter, with a frequency of just 0.09% in words. It is more frequent than Z, however. So that does not really … Continue reading »

P is for Present

The meaning of Christmas has changed over the decades from a religious and relatively sober festival to an occasion whereby extravagant gifts are exchanged. I just read an article this week that women expect their partner to spend half their week salary on gifts for her, which equates to just under £300 (about $500). Top … Continue reading »
