2011 UK Stamps
Then there is the usual, panics over present buying and emptying the food shops of their contents..
For me Christmas is about spending time with the people you love, enjoying food, fun and laughter.
i hope you have enjoyed reading this little insight into Christmas in England.
I wish you a very Happy and joyful Christmas, spend time with the ones closest to you and a prosperous New Year 2012…

Hi, lovely A Little Inspiration readers, I am so excited to be guest posting here on lovely Angie’s blog.
I am Claire, I blog over at Polkadot-Pretties, where i talk about my journey through motherhood, crafts, sewing, starting a business and pretty things along the way. Stop by and say ‘Hi’, I love to meet new friends.
The focus for my guest post is Christmas in England..
A special Christmas family meal is traditionally an important part of our holiday’s celebration. A standard Meal includes, Turkey, gravy, potatoes, vegetables, stuffing and in the part of England i live Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes.
Desert includes Christmas pudding, which is a rich fruit cake and mice pies.
The table is usually decorated with candles and Christmas crackers (in my home everyone must wear their paper hats, found in the crackers).
Homes are decorated with Christmas trees, stockings and festive lights. Wreaths are now becoming more popular too.
Some photos i took recently…to show you decorations..
Something else that England does is issue Christmas-themed Stamps each year!!
