Review

Quirky and left field but fascinating - Amazon

From the Author

England 

has many strange, yet real, traditions such as 
  • Bog Snorkelling, 
  • Bonfire Night, 
  • Cheese Rolling
  • Haxey Hood
This book describes 40 more made-up traditions in a similar vein. 

Amateur Psychologists can gain a better understanding of the British and their way of life by reading about Turtle Rinsing in London, Arrow Catching in Staffordshire, and Animal Gambling in the Forest of Dean. 

Armchair travellers can discover where a Duck Quacking contest, a Pipe Cleaner Festival, and a Thimble Throwing competition take place. 

Former athletes and DIY enthusiasts can marvel at people's spitting, blowing, and digging exploits.

I hope the book inspires people to go to Britain and seek out for themselves these traditions and similar ones. Why not take part in some of them? Try and beat some of the records set in these contests. Have your name remembered by people for hundreds of years as the person who has flicked an apple pip further than anyone else in the whole of human history. Be admired as the person who has best imitated a duck or been able to balance a sparrow feather on their finger for longer than anyone else ever has. These records will provide you and your family with memories and a legacy that no one can take away.

All the stories in this book are distinct and can be read independently; this is a book for the busy individual who has a spare five minutes to discover the secrets of Biscuit Rolling.
