☆ calm  冷静
Are the “Keep Calm and Carry On” pictures popular in Japan? In Australia and around the world it seems like they are really popular, every day I see a new version of it. They all say, “Keep Calm and XYZ”. The “xyz” part changes according to the situation. There are so many different versions. The original is from the UK in 1939 as a motivational poster for people at the beginning of WWII.
For some reason though, recently in social media, it has become a really popular saying again. Last week I was at an office, and the people shared a desk, and so they had a poster saying, “Keep Calm and Keep This Desk Clean.” Ha ha! I need one of those! Another one I saw at the alcohol shop, “Keep Calm and Drink Wine”… and another, “Keep Calm and Read Books.” Honestly, there is one for every situation!! Have you ever seen them? If not, Google “Keep Calm and Carry On”. 🙂
