Re: It's almost Christmas!

Ah well-can only say it as it was from our experience. OH confirms that he never ever knew anyone with real candles in the UK, even in the 40s/50s and 60s (I lived there since 1970)- and certainly not ones that were actually lit. So it is interesting. He lived in London, Sussex and Surrey as a child.

We had to explain to the girls that Santa didn't really like sherry and much preferred a good glass of single malt.
Well you won't have known everyone. That's where anecdotes-as-facts fall over. Everyone else was having as proper and real and traditional a Christmas just as your family was. Does. In their own way. No right or wrong. Family traditions.
