Keep Calm and Carry On

Hello Everyone!

Have you ever wondered where the ever popular Keep Calm and Carry On saying originated?  I was just on Pinterest and came across this youtube video that gives the history of the quote.  I thought it was very interesting and wanted to share it with you.
I have always been interested in the history behind some of our everyday sayings and quotes.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did. So until next time...

Have a blessed day,

maggie jane


  1. Thanks for posting this Maggie! I did not know the story and to be honest, always felt a bit derisive of the quote with a crown above it. Now that I know the background, well lets just say it makes a difference. It is kind of sad how it has been trivialized though. Thanks for sharing!

  2. That so interesting! I just thought someone made it up recently.
