  1. I got five answers wrong, not too shabby! No wonder I didn’t know what wassailing was-I don’t go around giving gifts to friends and neighbors. Bah, humbug.

    I forgot that Ebenezer’s hallucinations ended on Christmas Day. I must have been drinking when I took the quiz.

    Thanks for posting these answers! Now I can sleep at night! 🙂
