A Traditional Christmas in Wales

Note: This post is brought to you by Amanda Andrews of Sykescottages.co.uk.

Although Christmas is celebrated in much the same way in each of the countries of the UK, Wales, the home of male voice choirs, rugby and leeks has managed to retain some pretty special festive traditions.

Known as the land of song, unsurprisingly Wales has a strong tradition of carols over the Christmas period.
The Plygain service was traditionally held in the local church between 3am and 6am on Christmas morning. Small groups of men would sing Welsh carols to the remaining congregation with it being a matter … Read the rest

A guide to visiting Sofia

Note:- This is a guest post by Kieran Chapman.

As one of the EU’s newest capitals, Sofia manages to combine its growing cosmopolitanism with a charming traditionalism.

Celebrating New Year

Best Wishes to all on the arrival of the New Year 2012.

Having met a few of my old school friends from Delhi after several years in the year gone by (2011), I found myself reminiscing how we used to celebrate the Christmas vacation in Delhi, especially the arrival of the new year.
The celebrations always involved intricate planning and things to do in Delhi.

The reason was, being from conservative families, we did not want to be found out having indulged in intoxication back at home. 🙂 You can imagine what … Read the rest
