Yes, they can often be ridiculous, but a tradition is a tradition after all, and the rest of the world is missing out on some of my favourite!
1. Buying Millions Of Twiglets And Storing Them Above Your Fridge
Am I the only one in the UK who thinks that these things are absolutely disgusting? I know that some people even just sit and lick the dust off them, the thought of which makes me feel pretty unpleasant if I’m honest.
That being said, it wouldn’t feel like Christmas if we weren’t stocking our houses with food that we’ll never eat. It’s the most, food wasted time, of the year!
2. The Beautiful Meat Package That Is Pigs In Blankets
Okay, so the US have their own version of this, which is wrong. They just do it wrong. Look at the picture below to see exactly what a pig in a blanket should look like and why it’s one of the greatest food inventions ever.
My family have decided to go full veggie this year, meaning we won’t be having pigs in blankets, meaning I will be spending the entire day whinging about the fact that we don’t have pigs in blankets.
3. Having Barrels Full Of Chocolate That Last Until Mid-February
Yeah, chocolate is one of those things that our family decides to stock up on, just like Twiglets, that are then in the house for months after Christmas. Seriously, it’s like once we’ve eaten all of the ones we like, we just leave the rest of them for when we’re dying for chocolate but don’t feel picky.
Why don’t we just buy seperate chocolate that are like the ones we like?! Christmas, in a lot of ways, makes no sense.
4. Wearing Paper Crowns
It may seem weird, but these things fall out of Christmas crackers and then we endeavor to wear them for as long as possible all day.
If not while you eat, you better make sure Granddad has one on when he falls asleep.
