Here’s a fun little Christmas tid bit for ya, did you know that in England people typically say Happy Christmas instead of Merry Christmas? I learned that on Jimmy Fallon the other night, ha! Oh and in England they have a fun little tradition called Christmas crackers that usually happens at the main meal. You and a partner pull open a popper and whoever ends up with the bigger side of the popper gets to keep the small prizes inside! Fun, right? Read more about Christmas crackers here on Wikipedia! Or actually stop reading all of it and go enjoy your fam : ) In my best English accent, Happy Christmas, y’all!
If you’re still reading… you don’t listen well! But, as per usual, I’ve got lots more to say! When I asked about the English Happy Christmas thing on facebook, I got some mixed responses, check it out here and here is what everyone had to say about Christmas crackers. I also wanted to quickly share the very first Christmas card we’ve ever sent out via snail mail! I had good intentions last year, but ended up sending Christmas cheer via email, more about that here. Here’s the front of the first ever Dorobek family Christmas card:
And here’s the back… I told myself I had 30 minutes to pick a picture or 2 and craft up the card on snapfish and then I was hitting the purchase button! I actually love how it turned out, minus the one little error in the letter. Can you find it?
If you’re my real life friend or family member, or heck, if you read C.R.A.F.T. you are well aware that I am not a perfectionist and probably expect a little error in my Christmas card! Haha. I’m creative, even with dates and spelling! I try, folks, I try!
On a different note, I showed y’all our house as decorated for Christmas as it was getting, but I never shared the update to my DIY peace wreath… I added lights and decided to use it to display all of the fun holiday cards! Check her out:
Thank you for reading C.R.A.F.T. (even full of grammatical errors and misspellings!) Seriously, I couldn’t do this without you! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas day with your family and friends! Merry Christmas and Happy Everything!
Psst… Here’s a little Christmas funny that involves that one weird relative AND the fun English tradition!
