I can’t stop laughing! Please read this and every single other post Ellen Hawley has ever written. You might not get any answers, but you just won’t care. You’ll be laughing too hard.
As the Christmas season sneaks up on us, more and more people turn to Notes from the U.K. for help in understanding the link between brussels sprouts and Christmas. (I’ll get to the pudding in a minute. Be patient.) It started as early as October. Or maybe that was September. Who keeps track?
If you’re not British, you’re thinking, Christmas and brussels sprouts?That makes as much sense as Easter and birthday candles, or Hanukkah and ham.
But brussels sprouts are a traditional part of the British Christmas dinner. I’ve explained all this at length before, with (please, do remember where you are) varying degrees of accuracy and insanity. So instead of repeating myself, let me refer you to that great authority on all things British, me, for everything you need to know on the subject. And more. You’ll find it here and here and yes, even here.
