  • What should I send to my friend in England?

    Best answer: That is the problem now, with globalization. We all have almost the same stuff available to us. Although you say you don't want to send chocolate, she might like Hershey Kisses, which are available here but not widely and are quite expensive. And there's something about 'Kisses' that sound as if... show more
    Best answer: That is the problem now, with globalization. We all have almost the same stuff available to us. Although you say you don't want to send chocolate, she might like Hershey Kisses, which are available here but not widely and are quite expensive. And there's something about 'Kisses' that sound as if they've been given with love. Aside from those, grape flavour candy is something we don't get here, and good jelly beans are quite expensive and would probably be appreciated. And we don't really have anything like Jolly Rancher anymore. Just a few suggestions and i'm sure there must be others. She'll probably be delighted with whatever you send, because who doesn't love a gift from an overseas friend!

    I'll be going to Wales for the first time for a week's holiday. I've met some really lovely Welsh people that live in London but I see on here that people say that Welsh people are not fond of English people.(I'm English) Well the ones I met in London were very friendly. To be honest, this banter is scaring me a bit. I would love to go and I would like to learn the language aswell. I know that the Welsh language is not as common now but I would still be happy to learn it. I'm not sure how they would take it. Would they be annoyed and think that you're making fun of them or would they be impressed that you're actually trying to learn the language? I know about the sports rivalry but I never get involved in that. I'll be going to Cardiff. What would I expect there and would I be welcomed?

Or does Rowling not allow that? Thanks to anyone who answers.

    Best answer: The drinking age is five; at home with parental supervision.

    The age to buy alcohol is 18 in most cases; or 16 for certain drinks, with a meal while accompanied by an adult.

    It's isn't especially difficult to get served in certain pubs without ID.

    It's also worth remembering that the characters in Skins are actually at a sixth-form college (age 16-19); some of them will be 18 years old.

  • Do British folks celebrate religiously 24/7?

    Best answer: Hardly, given that we spend one third of our lives asleep. And when we're awake, most British people seem to be more preoccupied with earning enough to survive and with taking care of their children and families than with religion. I can't speak for others, of course, but it is my observation that SOME... show more
    Best answer: Hardly, given that we spend one third of our lives asleep. And when we're awake, most British people seem to be more preoccupied with earning enough to survive and with taking care of their children and families than with religion.

    I can't speak for others, of course, but it is my observation that SOME British people celebrate their religion and their God daily, even when they are not in church.

    On the other hand, I may have completely misunderstood your question because the emphasis may be on "celebrate" rather than on "religiously."

  • Do British people ever desire to visit one of her overseas territories for good measure?

    Best answer: Not particularly as I can't afford that much time off. You have little choice of when you can go and how long you can stay because getting to Tristan means a fishing boat from South Africa - the RMS St Helena no longer goes there. So it's rather complicated to even arrange to go, and what about somewhere... show more
    Best answer: Not particularly as I can't afford that much time off. You have little choice of when you can go and how long you can stay because getting to Tristan means a fishing boat from South Africa - the RMS St Helena no longer goes there. So it's rather complicated to even arrange to go, and what about somewhere to stay? At last count the population was 293 - they don't have a hotel. You'd have to find a local family willing to let you stay with them.

    What lush mountains? There's only one, the volcano itself.

    If you want to visit somewhere a bit easier to get at, St Helena now has an airport on it with one flight a week. It's part of the same territory. So is Ascension Island, but that's basically a military base so forget visiting it.

    Far more practical is Gibraltar. Bermuda, Montserrat, the British Virgin Islands, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Anguilla and the Cayman Islands are all British overseas territories too.
