We had a quiz at our works lunch today so I thought I'd share the questions. Try it without googling. I'll do it in stages:

1 which Italian cake popular at Christmas belongs to Tony?
2 the American ad writer Robert L May invented which colourful Christmas character in 1939?
3 plus or minus 2 years when did Etch-a -sketch first appear under the Xmas tree?
4 what kind of animal delivers gifts at christmas in Syria?
5 On which 3 feast days do Americans consume the most food?
6 when did queen Elizabeth 2nd deliver her first televised Christmas message to the nation?
7 who composed the music for the festive season ballet The Nutcracker?
