Rory’s Christmas Challenge

Rory — you know him as A Guy Called Bloke — posed a bunch of new questions in today’s Blogger’s Christmas Challenge and then he instructed us to answer his questions and, once done, to tag three bloggers to do the same!

I’m going to answer his questions below, but instead of tagging three bloggers, I’m going to tag any and all bloggers who feel like answering them.

What’s lucky to find in your Christmas Pudding?

A thumb? A Plum?

What’s the second line of “I’m dreaming of a White Christmas”?

🎵 “Just like the ones I used to know” 🎶

In what decade was the first Christmas Card sent in the UK?

The first decade?

Who brings presents to children in Holland on the 5th/6th December?

Who started the custom of Wassailing and what does it mean?

I think it has something to do with a spicy drink, like an alcohol-infused pumpkin spice latte. As to who started it? I dunno. Starbucks, maybe?

How many of Rudolph’s eight companions names start with ‘D’?

Four: Dopey, Doc, Dumb, and Dumber.

At Christmas it’s customary to kiss under what?

Under the bed? No, just kidding. It’s in the bed under the covers.

What type of tree did the partridge sit in?

A pear tree. You know, I’ve never in my life seen a partridge in any tree, in real life, anyway.244389DA-20FA-42DB-B88D-EBFBC49DC5CD

How many ghosts were there is a Christmas Carol and who were they?

Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. Hey, that would be a good name for a rock band: Jacob Marley and the Three Ghosts.

    We had a pear tree in our backyard from the late eighties to the early aughts; it was there before and after, but we moved out. One son in particular liked to hang out in the tree and eat pears. It just dawned on me that he may be a partridge.
