Merry Crimble

This year we've celebrated our roots. Being proud Northerners we fettled a calendar based on our phrases and dialect. December's page was a snowflake made up from the word ‘Crimble' and became the inspiration for the animation above.

The word ‘Crimble’ was first coined by John Lennon in 1963 and comes from an obscure Beatles Fan Club Recording that got John Lennon in the dictionary when he says: “Garry Crimble to you, Garry Crimble to you, Garry Bable, Dear Christmas, Happy Birthday, me too!” Er yeah, you've got to love him.

The calendar was printed in a tabloid newspaper format, to stick up, hang up, cut up and when you were done with it you could wrap your fish and chips up in it.

If you don't have one and would like a copy we do have a few left. Email us and we'll post one out to you. On a first come, first served basis of course.
