During Christmas time I was in Germany and there I've become aware of some funny tradition:
A short British cabaret sketch from the 1920s has become a German New Year's tradition and I've seen it on national TV.
The sketch presents the 90th birthday of elderly upper-class Englishwoman Miss Sophie, who hosts a celebration dinner every year for her friends Mr Pommeroy, Mr Winterbottom, Sir Toby, and Admiral von Schneider (all have already died
) and butler James.
Only first 2,3 minutes are introduction in German language all rest is in English.
Let us all lough for couple of minutes and get some rest from our sad stories
