The Great Christmas Tray Debate

At Christmas time, many of us find ourselves reflecting on the past year and what positive contributions we have made to our own lives as well as those around us.

It's a time to reflect on the big questions in life and there's nothing quite as big as this one, is muggi a tray?

No, it's not.

We could stop there but that would make this a very short blog post. So, to expound, here's a hopefully well-balanced argument for our case.

Firstly, let's look at the definition of a tray...

a flat, shallow container with a raised rim, typically used for carrying food and drink, or for holding small items or loose material.

We'd argue that muggi isn't "a flat, shallow container with a raised rim" but it absolutely is "typically used for carrying food and drink, or for holding small items or loose material".

So, could one call muggi "half a tray"?

Semantics this may be but we feel it's important to mention that muggi isn't a reinvention of a tray. If a tray was able to hold four mugs securely on a listing boat in the English Channel then muggi may not have been invented at all.

Don't get us wrong, we love a tray. We use one most days when eating dinner in front of the TV. It's only at Christmas that we use the dining table!

Especially at this time of year, such confusion in definitions could lead to disappointment when buying Christmas gifts. It's heartbreaking to think that anyone who's asked Santa for a muggi this year could be greeted with a boring brown tray on Christmas morning.

So, consider the muggi versus tray debate settled and hope this post prevents Christmas misery this year and years to come.
