Festive Cheer
me and my camera
Thankfully, I've just discovered I'm not the murderer. Phew! After 4 hours (!) of family murder mystery game, we found out it was my sister-in-law, in cahoots with Jacques Frost, ski instructor to the stars, played by family friend Verity. Believe it or not all this came in a in a cracker set (crackers being a UK christmas tradition, that more typically contains a weak joke, a paper crown, & some cheep plastic trinkets - but in this case was Poirot-style clues) so intrigue and alcohol abound all afternoon.

Yesterday's crackers had us producing a rousing chorus of hark the herald angels on a set of  hand bells, (my father somewhat over playing his number 5 bell - blame the Port - and my brother being a semi-tone out through no fault of his own). Ah family festive fun.

Sounds like you had a great time!

Sounds like you had a great time! I love doing handbells. My Christmas consisted of lots of cognac!

Re: Sounds like you had a great time!

sounds like a fine way to spread some festive cheer!

my dad does this wine tasting game for the family every year too - he opens & decants 10 bottles... we are all supposed to guess the grape, the year, the region and give it marks out of 10. Its all wild guess work of course and rapidly degenerates into comedy with much cheating. The top rated 2 bottles for xmas dinner, and the losing 8 bottles drunk on xmas eve!
