FamilySearch Wiki ~ British Holiday Traditions

During a conference recently, members of the group talked about the upcomingchristmas_carol_5 holiday season.  Even though all of us were English speakers, there were differences in the holidays we celebrate at this time of the years.

Much of television and movie programming and scripting exhibits U.S. centric holiday names and calendar dates. 

Questions arose about when holidays are celebrated in other countries and what they entail.

Have you ever wondered about the holiday celebrations by your British ancestors?  if so, the FamilySearch Wiki has the answers in the article, “Holiday Traditions in the British Isles.

Let’s take a look at it.  While you visit the article on the wiki be sure to search for other topics that will help in your ancestral quest.  The answers are probably on the wiki.
