|Christmas, British style over on
Smitten by Britain
No matter how long I live in the Netherlands I will always be a Brit. By that I don’t mean the obvious fact that I remain a British passport holder, or that my birth country obviously doesn’t change. I mean that culturally I’ll always be British. It’s ingrained. The core of me is British and moving overseas doesn’t change that. I can speak Dutch day in, day out but I’m British. I could even surrender my British nationality for a Dutch one but the reality would be that I would still be more British than I am Dutch.
My latest post is about Christmas (what else at this stage in December?) and the relationship that the British have with the television during the festive period. It wasn’t until I moved to the Netherlands that I realised Christmas specials and spending Christmas in front of the TV with a glass (or bottle) of alcohol in hand wasn’t a worldwide thing. It’s truly British. Head over to Smitten by Britain to find out why.
