Whats the difference between an English aunt and anyother type of aunt??
I am English and I have 4 aunts and none of them are remotely the same ... and they all have nothing in common except that they are my aunts ... Why are you doing research on English aunts exactly?
well I'll give you some information any way
aunt 1: A fashion designer has a few boutiques in London and a line in Top Shop, in her late 30s, artistic, good with children but has none of her own, used to play with me a lot when I was young, her name was the first word I said, always in fluffy pink things, dark features, very slender and small, extremely frenetic taste likes anything bright and crazy, forgets when your birthday is,
aunt2: works for Paul Smith and is a graphic designer, late 30s, wanted to be a ballet dancer when she was 16 but couldn't afford the school fees, very shy and retiring, tall and slim, lives in the barbican, very minimalist, all clothes are various shades of grey wool, her and my uncle share clothes, also good with children but has none of her own, knows when your birthday is but is too shy to call you
aunt3: mid 40s, a nurse, quite abrupt and scary, don't let her brush your hair it hurts ... a lot, typical west country type, quite nice and friendly but knows how to hit you, I haven't seen her in over 5 years ... probably why I have such a childlike view of her
aunt4: A nursery nurse, also in her late 30s, the most typically aunt-like of the 4, bubbly and quite loud, very funny, absolutely doting on her son, gives good presents, very mainsteam fashion sense, though quite young for her age, huge breasts, not patronising or condesending
hope that helps
