Whilst many people are just excited for a few months of good weather and some great food; there are a few of us out there who are interested in knowing a bit more about this tradition. Where did it first start? What does it mean? Why did it get so popular? Why has it stuck around until 2013? We’ll try and answer all of those questions to the best of our knowledge (but remember, we aren’t experts, just enthusiasts!)
As a true British Citizen, I can tell you a few things for sure: I love the three weeks of sunshine we get a year and I love spending that time gathered around a barbecue with friends. I have no doubt that a load of other Brits are nodding their head in agreement with me – maybe even drooling at the thought of some grilled steak – calm yourself.
