Little Drummer Boy
Simply a beautiful rendition of the traditional Christmas Carol. Hayley sings so magically and brings back memories of my childhood when we used to sing this at Brownies! Delightful.
Christmas in Australia 1958
This is quite a long video, but it is worth looking at. Over fifty years old, it is a reminder of how Christmas once was, only this time in a hot climate. Traditionally still the same as the UK, but no snow! Family was clearly so important when this video was shot. It seems "old fashioned" maybe , but the overall message is the same. Families and friends together, happiness and joy. Memories especially poignant at this time of year.
Why Britain Uses Separate Hot and Cold Taps
This is an interesting one, I did know these facts before watching, but I wonder if all people do. Do you have mixer taps or separate hot and cold taps? Some of the points Tom makes are perhaps not so widely recognised. It's all to do with running the taps when drinking water and as some of us may be requiring more than is usual at this time of year, drink safely!!
