Boxing Day

Lileks posted a link to this video on Twitter.

It's just under 10 minutes, but well worth a look. Christmas in England. But not Charles Dickens - it's 1941:

From the YouTube info-bit on the film:

Despite the Blitz, it's 'business as usual' as England prepares for Christmas in this propaganda film intended for US audiences. It's a Christmas of holly and barbed wire, guns and tinsel, yet the British, we are told, are determined to make it as cheerful as possible.
