I was wrecking my brains for something to post for my turn in this years Virtual Advent Tour, when I thought back to my recent trip across the snow-bound UK to visit some friends at the seaside.
And well I was reminded that we Brits really do get up to so some barmy things, none more so than those we get up to on Boxing Day!
(I can’t leave without reminding you about the utterly hilarious Frank Kelly’s Christmas Countdown I posted about last year, makes me laugh harder and harder every time I hear it!)So I thought I’d share a few with you I found online…
Football on the Beech
An annual charity/comedy football match on that takes place on the beach at Scarborough, where the players wear fancy dress and half-time oranges are replaced by a quick drink of beer. Which is followed by…
Where people sail some very rickety home made rafts around a very cold harbour!
Or if the sea isn’t your thing, try racing down a river in Matlock.
Rubber Duck Racing
or maybe it’s rafts that are not your thing, how about sponsoring a rubber duck for a quid?
Tenby Boxing Day Swim
Or for the really, really brave at heart, how about a nice little swim?
Suffice it to say, my Boxing Day’s are usually much more relaxed (and sensible!) Watching the Christmas Day films that I recorded and starting to read whatever bookish goodness I managed to receive the day before.
Be sure to visit today’s other participants.
