Humbug Day - 2021-12-21
What is Humbug Day?
A humbug is someone or something that behaves in a deceptive or dishonest way, often as a hoax or in jest. The term was first recorded in 1751 as student slang. It was then also used to describe “a nautical phrase” in 1840. It is now also often used to describe something as hypocritical nonsense or gibberish. A lot of people believe that mint humbugs are called that after Ebenezer Scrooge in Dickens's Christmas Carol who kept saying "bah humbug". However, the origin is not a hundred percent clear. Some say the name comes from the north of England where "hum" means toffee and "bog" means flavoured with mint.
