Decorate Your Tree with Iconic Keep Calm and Carry On Ornaments
The increasingly popular Keep Calm and Carry On posters are now available as Christmas ornaments and I’m sure that 2013 will see them adorning Christmas trees around the world – will yours be one of them?
Keep Calm and Carry On posters have reached iconic status on a worldwide stage in recent years what appeals about their popularity is hard to determine, they appear to be in the vein of the British people’s reputation for maintaining a stiff upper lip and soldiering on with battles, but their past isn’t quite that straight forward.
The Keep Calm and Carry On posters were designed by the British government at the start of World War II, but were never used and were in fact supposed to be destroyed. When a couple of the posters were discovered they became icons of an era where the British maintained their calm personas in spite of losing family members, rationing and bombing. The posters were actually designed to be put up should the Nazi’s manage to invade England!

Meanwhile I not only love the Keep Calm and Carry On ornaments, but I have fallen in love with some of the parodies of the original Keep Calm such as Keep Calm and Eat Cupcakes which is why I think a tree decorated in these Christmas ornaments will look awesome. In my case I’m just buying one to add to my collection, but which one to choose….
