Merry Britmas and a Blighty New Year. In this post-Brexit era, and with the US soon to be governed by an overgrown Oompah Loompah with a puff of smoke for hair, this is the perfect year to retreat to our festive bunkers and keep it Brit.
Here’s 12 ways to have a happy home-grown Christmas
1. Call him Father Christmas, not Santa
To us Brits, the jolly personification of festive gift-giving is traditionally called Father Christmas, who resides in Lapland. To Americans, he’s Santa (pronounced “Sandah”) and lives in the North Pole. We are, of course, correct, so commence your Britmas by trenchantly insisting upon his proper name. Even if it makes small children cry. Also stamp down on any mention of “Happy holidays” or “Kris Kringle”. What’s with the Ks? Anyone would think he was one of those Kardashian creatures.
