WHY NOT AN OLDE ENGLISH CHRISTMAS AT YOUR HOUSE?




Every year English Home Magazine puts out a special supplement in the holiday edition.  Last year I became aware of this when mine arrived and I recommended it to my readers.  Now, the 2011 supplement is out and you will find it delightful!



You can make yourself a nice cup of tea and relax flipping the pages.  This publication will educate you on the birth and meaning and all our favorite traditions!










I look forward to my regular copy of English Home but this additional insert is a great reference copy for learning more about history and the origins of our holiday customs.  




We all loved them movie, "The King's Speech" - but what about the Queen's Speech?


Today I a linking with two other bloggers and their special weekly events:  Kathy at A Delightsome Life and also Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage












Have a wonderful week!

OMG! I wish I could get this English supplement! Can you please tell me if you can buy it in the USA so I can have someone bring one to me? I love your tea cup with some tea to start to look thru such a wonderful magazine. Awaiting for your answer, thank you so much for sharing. Lots of hugs, FABBY

I'll have to go look for that one! Christmas is my favorite time of year and I LOVE all the traditions and music and decor.

Good afternoon Bernideen,
You had my attention at Christmas as it's my favourite holiday! What a lovely read that must be. It would make for some very nice reading. Your tea is always lovely and I do love the OCR pattern. Sorry I didn't link up for your Saturday tea as I was away on the weekend. Thank you for sharing. It's always a pleasure to have you join me!

Blessings dear friend,
Sandi

I have subscribed to both English Homes and English Gardens and have enjoyed both. Had to give them up as I subscribe to too many magazines..but I always look at them when I can..very nice.

Seriously wanting to check out English Home Magazine ... and love reading about why we do/celebrate things during the holidays ... things have become so commercialized that the real meaning of certain traditions are being forgotten.. Hope they have it at Chapters here in Canada... Happy Tuesday..xo HHL

Hi Bernideen, What a beautiful magazine. Love your Old Country Roses, too. Enjoyed the photo of the squirrel and mums on your sidebar. Now is that cute or what!!! Thanks for inviting me to link to your tea party. I will be on vacation for a few days so won't be able to this time, unless the link is still open when I return. I'll try to check. Thanks for visiting me. Thymes Remembered has closed unfortunately, but if you ever get back to Iowa look me up and I'll get you to some lovely tearooms!
Blessings, Beth

Hi Bernideen,
that looks like a wonderful magazine. It is nice to think and plan now for Christmas. Goose for Christmas dinner is very traditional in Germany, too.
Best greetings, Johanna
