    One question everyone got wrong was "3. First invented in Ancient China, what did the Hallmark company popularise in the 1920's?"

    Nope not Christmas cards as most said but "wrapping paper"

    Edit:
    Just spotted a typo question 10 "On which date is the last of Christmas?" It should of course been the "On which date is the last day of Christmas?" the answer was 5th January though in our house we used to say the 6th.

    Our Princess gets an honourable mention with her answer to question 24 "Which creature is a common Christmas tree decoration in Poland as it is thought to have woven a blanket for baby Jesus?" The answer of course is a "spider" not a sheep with knitting needles

    I replied ‘twelfth night’ as the last day of Christmas which it is.

    6th is epiphany, traditionally the day when the Wise Men arrived. And the last day of Christmas (pfft)

    Congratulations SM, suppose
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
