30-Day Blogging Challenge: English Traditions


Today’s Prompt is Good Traditions

“Every country has its prestigious traditions. Some of those are our favorites. In the community you live now enumerate the good traditions you and your family are anxious to celebrate.”

 My favourite tradition in England is the eating of many many pancakes on Shrove Tuesday/ Pancake day. I absolutely looove them.

In the North-west of England we have another tradition that I always look forward to, which is to drown our chips (fries) in beef gravy and put the gravy soaked chips on bread to make a chips’n’gravy sandwich. Yum.

Beyond that, we aren’t much for traditions after public holidays.

  1. Yum, I love the Shrove Tuesday tradition, too. Tomorrow is July 4th here and we celebrate with fireworks (strictly regulated now because of fire danger) and barbeque. When I was young we had our own fireworks.

    • Independence Day. I would love something like that here. We have Bonfire Night (or Guy Fawkes Night) but that’s not quite as regulated so the fireworks can be a bit scary.
