When was the last time you played parlour games, sang carols or put satsumas and nuts in stockings?
Not in a long time? Or maybe never? It seems these are just some of the British festive traditions that need to be saved for future generations, according to a survey.
More than three-quarters (78%) of people look forward to Christmas time each year, and three-fifths (60%) think festive traditions are important to the celebrations, but it seems classic activities such as roasting chestnuts are at risk of losing favour to more modern pursuits.
The survey of 2,000 people, commissioned by Egmont Publishing – a publisher of Winnie-the-Pooh stories – has inspired a series of new illustrations which show the characters enjoying the simple festive pleasures of old.
Drawn by illustrator Mark Burgess, the pictures show Pooh characters acting out 10 old traditions that we think need saving.
