Christmas in the U.K

 

Christmas in U.K is similar to how we celebrate in the United States. December 25th is the day they celebrate it too.

In England and nearby countries, they have really big Christmas trees and they just do everything really big. They call Santa “Father Christmas”christmas-video-ads-uk-2016-1000x600The Man Behind the Story of Father Christmas/Santa Claus. St. Nicholas was a Bishop who lived in the fourth century in a place called Myra in Asia Minor. He was a very rich man.  They have lights downtown in many different places like Longleat safari park, Wiltshire and Enchanted Parks, Gateshead ,usually have a famous person turn them on. This year it was actress and singer Jennifer Ellison.  They have their Christmas dinner in the early afternoons, around 12 or 1 similar to what we do. For dessert, they have Christmas pudding here is some of the ingredients they put in there I plum pudding, having been thickened with eggs, breadcrumbs, dried fruit and given more flavor with the addition of beer and spirits.
