Holidays in Britain

Some may be surprised that we are featuring a blog post on British holidays as this blog bridges the culture gap between U.S. Americans and people from India. While a majority of Authentic Journeys' clients work with Americans, several hundred also work on distributed teams with U.K. and British counterparts. Some of these teams have members from various Western countries including Britain, while other teams are 100% U.K. or British teams. Due to this, I thought some readers may like to learn a little about the British holidays. This post will provide links to video tutorials to 20 different British holidays.

The list of videos will appear in the order listed in the embedded video below. If preferred, click on the link of the specific video to watch it in a separate browser or tab.
