Merry Christmas, everyone!

What's on the top of your Christmas list? I hope everyone's been good otherwise Santa won't be coming to you.

Have you put up your Christmas tree? Have you made your gingerbread house? All things we do around Christmas. But why do we do them and are they all English?

I can tell you now that they aren't all English; I can tell you right here on the spot that gingerbread houses are German, Christmas trees German, nut crackers German, Christmas markets German and many more. So thank you to the Germans for all their amazing traditions.


PS: Watch this video about Christmas. It's called The Bear & The Hare by John Lewis.

I've never had a gingerbread house. What are they like? Do you make little gingerbread people to live inside?

That would be cool. But no.

Got something to say?
