    We do Christmas crackers every year- from an American who actually knows what they are. I have mini playing cards, magnifying glasses, tiny puzzles...

    Canadian here, literally have a full box of Christmas crackers on my bed with me as I'm watching this. It's mind-blowing to me that many Americans may not have /any/ idea what they are??

     boomChristmas crackers are huge in Canada! Did not realize they weren't as popular in America. My grandmother used to make her own with tiny alcohol bottles inside.  collision

    Americans don't have christmas crackers? O_O  I assumed they were universal for countries that celebrated christmas, like candy canes and stockings.

    Why is it that almost every American I know loves England and English accents and such but so many English people just loathe anything that has to do with America? Like, I love a full English breakfast. I also love American bacon and ham/English bacon.

      Y'see, this confuses me even more. Runescape has christmas crackers and party hats and I've never seen or heard anyone on there be confused as to what they are. I just figured that any country that celebrates christmas has them.

    Hello RT fans can anyone help me figure out how to find where it is that someone replied to you when you have a notification. For instance it says "blank replied to you" but I click it and it just takes me to the video and I have to search through pages of comments to find mine and the reply. On RWBY videos that is searching through like 20-30 pages. i have to be missing something here and if not how have they not worked on fixing this yet? It's a pretty big company now. Almost all sites have easy design to find the people's comments who replied to yours.

      There's literally no way to tell. You just gotta scroll through the comments and look like old school youtube. Love RT, but honestly yeah this website doesn't have much thought put into the comments or the video player at all. HTML 5 player but it still requires flash...

    Canadian Thanksgiving (according to Wiki) happened because after the American Revolution, Americans who were still loyal to Britain carried that tradition up north when they immigrated to Canada. The dates (and reasons for celebrations) jumped around for a while and then "In 1957, Parliament fixed Thanksgiving as the second Monday in October".

    Owing to the fact that we are an English colony, Australian Christmas traditions are much the same as the Brits, but we wear singlets (wifebeaters), board shorts and thongs (as in flip flops, also known as pluggers). However, like the Americans, a lot of families have Christmas ham as well!


    Side note, watching Burnie try to figure out a cracker hat might have been the funniest thing I've seen all year.

      What part tipped you off to that? Was it when they said they hated thanksgiving and thought it was stupid only to learn moments later that it's the exact same thing they have on a different day?

      @edwardriddell they were talking about about Fireworks night/Guy Fawkes night which is where we have massive bonfires that we burn an effigy of Guy Fawkes on (the person who was part of the plot to blow up James I in the houses of parliament with gunpowder), eat hog roasts, drink and watch fireworks. It's not at all like thanksgiving, the article they were reading says it is a day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure, ie being thankful for a terrorist attack failing. It would be the same as if you stopped 9/11 and then celebrated it by burning effigies of Saudi princes.

    Just found out Britain does have an equivalent to American Thanksgiving called the Harvest Festival! "The Harvest Festival of Thanksgiving does not have an official date in the United Kingdom, however it is traditionally held on or near the Sunday of the harvest moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox. Harvest Thanksgiving in Britain also has pre-Christian roots when the Saxons would offer the first sheaf of barley, oats, or wheat to fertility gods. When the harvest was finally collected, communities would come together for a harvest supper. When Christianity arrived in Britain many traditions remained, & today the Harvest Festival is marked by churches & schools in late September/early October (same as Canada) with singing, praying & decorating with baskets of food & fruit to celebrate a successful harvest & to give thanks. Collections of food are usually held which are then given to local charities which help the homeless & those in need." So England actually has at least 2 thanksgivings, 1 giving thanks for a good harvest & the other giving thanks for our King not getting blown up.

      basically this is celebrated by regular church goers and children, plus it's not like we all meet up and have a meal, generally we would give shitty canned foods to an enormous pile of shitty canned foods at the door of the school/church and it is then given to those who need food, typically the homeless
