10 Photos Which Hilariously Show The Difference Between Christmas In The UK And US

Whether you like to admit it or not, there is a rivalry between the UK and the US. The two countries are often in competition with one another, whether the prize be oil in the Middle East or Christmas decorations.

While the UK boasts stunning architecture decorated with festive garlands, the US shows off its snow-capped skyscrapers and dazzling lights, making it hard to determine which one is best at Christmas.

But, whether you like it or not, at Christmas there is one clear winner. These photographs prove who is the victor in this particular battle...

1. This is snow joke

England is synonymous with wet weather and at Christmas that doesn't change. Sadly, the rain doesn't turn to snow and cover the whole country with a crisp white blanket - when it does, it's usually a few inches which push the small island into a state of emergency.

Meanwhile, when it snows in America, it comes in droves. New York City is often a picturesque vision of shimmering white, while across the pond, London is turning into one big, sad, grey puddle.

5. Christmas jumpers

Your Christmas jumper can say a lot about you as a person. But apparently, people in England simply don't care. The uglier the better and nothing can ever be too crude!

6. Christmas themed food 

Let's be honest, the best thing about Christmas is the food. The succulent maple roasted bacon and tasty turkey is the only thing we actually care about. However, in England the expectations are far greater than the reality when it comes to festive themed treats...

7. Christmas lights 

Who really has time to coat their entire house in lights? Apparently nobody in England. The tradition of dressing up your house for the festive period is exclusively American.

8. Snowman

As we have mentioned before, it rarely snows in England and when it does people are too scared to leave their own house. Why? Well, because when you do step outside, you are met with phallic snowmen and a lot of yellow patches!

10. Winter Wonderland

While America boasts glorious ice rinks, England has to make do with muddy puddles which are inevitable in a country which gets so wet in the winter.
