Winter is approaching - and it's set to be the coldest and most savage winter the UK has seen in decades! (Well, that's according to warnings from the Met Office and scientists, at least!) Bobble hats and woolly jumpers at the ready...
The British winter is the period between the winter solstice (22nd December 2019) and the spring equinox (20th March 2020). However, winter is more commonly recognised as 1st December until 28th or 29th February.
Fun fact alert: so-called 'Frost Fairs' were held on the iced-up River Thames from the 7th century all the way up until the early 19th century. Events such as racing, skating and puppet shows took place, with visitors also able to browse market stalls set up by tradespeople. The last 'Frost Fair' took place in February 1814, when the ice was so thick that an elephant was paraded across it. (An incident that was given a nod-to in a 2017 episode of Doctor Who).
