This year Diana surpassed herself with the most difficult quiz since I joined. Harriet introduced us to a very competitive version of Pictionary that had team members running to beat their opponents, and we had some great readings and music, including some that we sang ourselves.
First of all, have a go at the quiz, and see how far you get before you download the answer files!
First Irene read to us from The House By the Dvina, by Eugenie Fraser, a most vivid account of Christmas in Russia, and then a contrast - the Battle of Hastings by Stanley Holloway, described as though it was a football match!
He then regaled us with a poem on the woes of 'Twelve Days of Turkey'.
Diana made a Christmas card for us all, which was displayed during the party, and came up with the great idea that we should all do the same and bring the results to the party next year. You will be reminded again next October or thereabouts.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
Best Wishes from Hannah
