Evergreen (sempervirent ou feuillage persistant en français). The Christmas tree or fir tree is an Evergreen. This means that it remains green all year round. Trees that lose their leaves are known as deciduous.
What would Christmas be without brandy butter? This sweet « sauce » which melts deliciously on hot pudding or mince pies is made with butter, icing sugar and brandy. C’est tellement anglais qu’il n’y a pas de traduction !
