Fail, England, Fail.


Dear England

Sure, you may have beaten them at two World Wars and your men may live longer than theirs, but man, when it comes to Christmas, the Germans really won, didn't they?

They gave us Christmas trees and nutcrackers and gingerbread houses. And, pretty much all the fun traditions. What, precisely, was your contribution to Christmas celebrations? Victorian ghost stories. Seriously? That's all you've got? Yeah, I know a lot of Christmas traditions don't make sense but this one in particular is sort of baffling. What, exactly, is the connection? Way to drop the ball there, John Bull.

Though, while we're on the subject: could you pass the word along to America and suggest we start doing crackers? That'd be great.

Thanks and loves,

That's so funny you mentioned crackers. I've been looking for good ones for weeks and didn't come up with anything. I hope to snag some at an after Christmas sale. And by the way, your Christmas feast did look magical!

Thanks re: the meal!

Mother and daddy went to this Victorian Christmas feast that had made their own somehow. With toilet paper rolls, it looked like and something that made a pop noise when pulled. That sounds like a lot of work, though.
