If you remember when we had tangerines at Christmas and made paper chains; when cards could be posted on Christmas Eve and were delivered on Christmas Day; when people knew the story of the Nativity and didn’t think “Frosty the Snowman” was a carol…and when the only thing you did early was make the Christmas cake…. you might identify with Lady Crabtree’s latest talk of a time when Christmas was special.
Lady Crabtree will air her views on the modern festive season; her loathing of “round robin” letters; cards that say,’ Happy Holiday’ and people who put up decorations in November. She will reveal some of the worst gifts that she has received and will share her tips for sending cards to people that you don’t like as well as how to dispose of unwanted items during December. With her wry humour and often poignant observations, plus the occasional monologue, Lady Crabtree will ask: Whatever happened to Christmas?
