My friend Andy Bondurant over at The Collective recently shared a video that I found enchanting.
(I call Andy a friend, but he’s never even met me. He has no clue who I am. But, because he is in my home on an almost daily basis through his blog and Twitter, I feel we are friends. It’s very one-sided, but that’s okay. I’m happy with the arrangement.)
So, have you been seeing a TON of the KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON signs on Pinterest, t-shirts and the likes? I certainly have.
There are even different versions and spoofs of the saying. (All of the following posters are available for purchase, just copy and paste the URL.)
Or, how about:
And, finally, this:

I really hadn’t thought why the saying is suddenly so popular.
In fact, it didn’t really appeal to me, mainly because I was seeing it EVERYWHERE. It was and is all the rage.
But, Andy brought my attention to a video that explains the background of the original saying.
And, now because I know the backstory to it, I love it!
I would give anything to have one of the original posters…
Check out the video. Kind of cool.
Keep Calm and Carry On,
