Christmas holidays in EnglandThe Christmas holidays have different names in England, the United Kingdom and parts of the Commonwealth. The British and most English-speaking countries call December 24th “Christmas Eve”, the evening before Christmas. There will be no presents until the morning of December 25th, the actual Christmas Day. December 26th is called Boxing Day in England. It may be a public holiday, but the shops will already be open again on this day and offer their customers great discounts. Schools and offices remain closed.
Where the name comes from is controversial, but one possible explanation is that on that day servants of various kinds received a box filled with money and gifts as an appreciation of their good work throughout the year. Usually employees had the day off to celebrate Christmas, as they mostly had to work on December 25th.
Christmas Cracker - English Christmas dinners start off with a bangOne of the most popular Christmas traditions and a beautifully decorated Christmas table in England and Great Britain is that there is a Christmas cracker, also called crackers, on every seat. These are then opened by each guest pulling on one end of the cracker. The crackers make a lot of noise when opened due to the included pop strip. They are usually felt with a small toy car, a saying or a colorful paper crown. The crown is usually worn all evening. So, if you've ever wondered why Brits always wear a crown on their Christmas pictures, now you know the answer.
It is of course important that the crackers match the rest of the Christmas decorations. That is why we have put together crackers in different colors and sizes for you, so that you too can find the perfect Christmas cracker for your Christmas table.
The Queen wishes everyone a Happy ChristmasIt has been around since 1957, the Queen's televised Christmas speech. Every year on December 25th at 3 p.m. local time, the Queen addresses the British people with a largely self-written speech. Her speech will be broadcast across the Commonwealth and is one of England's Christmas traditions not to be missed. The speech lasts about 10 minutes and summarizes the major events of the year.
At english-shop.de you will find the right gift ideas for fans of the Queen and the Royal Family.
Sweet Christmas - mint, orange and chocolateOf course, chocolate cannot be missing at Christmas. In addition to the mint-flavored chocolate, which is popular all year round, the British love orange-flavored chocolate, especially at Christmas. Whether strong dark chocolate, delicate milk chocolate or creamy white chocolate - refined with orange oil, every bite is a pleasure. The most famous orange chocolate in the shape of a real orange is made by Terry's and belongs under every British Christmas tree.
