  1. Rachel, I always love reading your posts and learning more about you and your traditions! FUN to know. And how blessed the Queen addresses her Christian Faith. Publicly! Praise God!

      Thanks Susan, yes it is wonderful the Queen has such a solid and firm faith. She’s a bold girl! 🙂

  2. Rachel,
    I truly enjoyed this window on YOUR Christmas traditions. Now, I also have a good trivia question for my next Thanksgiving feast 🙂 Actually this year, I am dusting off an old tradition of singing Christmas carols around my piano, albeit out of tune. We are not good singers, but we do like to lift our voices to God. So glad I stopped by this morning!
    Blessings,
    Bev

      I’m glad you stopped by, too. Singing Christmas carols sounds lovely and I’m sure you sound like angels to God. 🙂

  3. I just love reading your posts, especially when they take me home to Britain in my heart and memories 🙂 When we begin having Christmas in our own home I have all intentions of replicating {or attempting to} my Mum’s Christmas dinners!

      Sarah, I hope you are getting some special memories here in the US as well, or if you’re traveling back home.

  4. Christmas is summer, and long holidays (school is out for 5 – 6 weeks!) here in NZ. The traditional hot Christmas dinner (inherited from Britain!) of roast turkey, or lamb, followed by steamed Christmas pudding has been replaced in my generation by much lighter options. It’s entirely normal for a group to have an outdoor celebration – even at a beach! Over recent years there have been a few Christmas drive-throughout, where I take my granddaughter to see the real Christmas story re-enacted – what a joy to see the wonder on her face!
    Happy Christmas!

      Thanks Pam. Hope you are celebrating your family traditions this season. Merry Christmas.

  6. Hi Rachel, I enjoyed reading about the British-style Christmas and as an island Brit I can tell we have some of the same customs — definitely the roast turkey one. We also enjoy carolling, going from house to house and serenading others with Christmas songs. It’s a tradition that is slowly dying but which I really enjoy.
    Whatever you do, however you spend it this year, I hope you have a lovely celebration!

      Hope you have a wonderful Christmas. I’m with you about carolling. I miss Christmas carollers.
