Happy Christmas!

Trivia Quiz Since Christmas activities seem to start in any old month these days ... in the UK, some stores start decking out their displays as early as September - crazy! ... it doesn't really matter in which month you take this quiz, let alone which year!
The English Christmas is probably unique.
It's easily the biggest public holiday. With judicious fiddling of dates, the holiday can often be 'planned' to take up a week with weekends at either end! And that's just the 'hard' celebrating. Often, various functions take place in the weeks leading up, and the gap between Christmas and New Year mysteriously seems to get filled in the calendar! So there's often ten or eleven days of merrymaking. It's hard work!
Even within the UK the Scots probably treat Hogmanay with rather more dedicated 'entertaining'. The US (I understand) doesn't even have the next day off (our Boxing Day). And as for our Pacific colonies' BBQs on the beach - no comparison, however much fun they are!
So, since at the time of writing those diaries are starting to fill, here are a simple Englishman's ramblings around our sort of Christmas, written while (as yet) still physically and mentally able!
