How to Have Christmas in the English Countryside

Hang a wreath on your front door.

Light the fire, bring in lots of greenery from the garden and hang up iced gingerbread biscuits all over the house.

Decorate the table with reindeer, sparkly birds, nutcrackers and bowls filled with baubles.

Cook a Christmas feast of roast gammon, roast turkey, roast potatoes, carrots, parsnips, Brussels sprouts, bread sauce and gravy.

Walk off all that food with a long ramble through the countryside with the dog.

Make a gingerbread house, fill sherry glasses with sweets and eat plenty of cakes and treats.

Go to the meet of the Boxing Day Hunt.

A Christmas in the English Countryside



Relax in front of the fire at the village pub. At this pub in Wiltshire, Sir Walter Raleigh once sat in the corner of the fireplace smoking tobacco from a bowl. When his servant came in and saw smoke coming out of his master’s nose, he though he was on fire and threw a jug of water over him.





Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
