What does Crimbo mean?

Crimbo is slang for Christmas

Crimbo is a fun and playful term that British folks use when they’re talking about Christmas. It’s not about the religious side of the holiday, but more about the jolly, festive stuff. We’re talking Santa Claus, holiday parties, and of course, the mad rush to buy presents.

The term Crimbo really hit the big time with a comedy song called “Proper Crimbo”. This song was performed by a funny guy named Leigh Francis, but he made it under a different name – Bo’ Selecta. This catchy tune hit the airwaves on December 15, 2003, and has been a Crimbo classic ever since.

So next time you’re chatting with a Brit around the holiday season, drop in the word Crimbo and you’ll fit right in. It’s all about the fun, the shopping, and the Santa side of things. Just remember, Crimbo is for the festive times, not the church times.
