Why do British people talk so much about the weather?

1 Feb 2019

We all know that the weather is a popular subject among the British. People will bring it up in small talk and in their day to day conversations. But why do the British tend to keep talking about the weather, you might ask? Is it just a cultural thing, a habit passed on from generation to the other? Some believe that it’s all got to do with the climate in Britain – with rainy days being so common, people can’t help hoping for nicer weather, and therefore, any sign of a break in the clouds makes for great conversation, especially as you sit at a pub sipping at a pint of beer after having gotten yourself all drenched!

Thank God for pubs

Speaking of pubs, one other thing you might do at the traditional British pub besides chatting about the weather is try your luck on a slot machine while you wait for the rain to stop. And if you’re fed up of the old pub-style machine, you can always check out online slot machines instead - there are thousands available at the click of a button these days! What’s more, nowadays there are also ways you can win more on slots by looking at specific slot data. Visit Slottracker.com to learn more!
