Here are PCGuyIV’s questions for the last Fibbing Friday of 2019.
- Why was January chosen to be the first month of the year?
The New Year had to start somewhere and January was such a pretty little thing who smiled at her mentors and they wanted her to always be remembered..
- Why does the Chinese New Year not start until February?
January didn’t speak their language.
- What’s the point of eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day?
They were ordinary peas that had been burnt but due to massive hangovers from New Year’s Eve celebrations, nobody noticed as they ate their dinner with their eyes shut.
- Why do we make New Year’s resolutions?
Promises on paper rarely come to fruition. Ask any politician.
- What will Santa Claus be doing now that Christmas is over?
Replenishing his fat reserves for the Santa Suit next year having lost pounds on his delivery round.
- According to tradition, this is technically the 3rd day of Christmas. The 1st day is Christmas, itself. So what is the 12th day known as?
- why are so many of the gifts listed in the song, The 12 Days of Christmas, birds?
Somehow toys, cosmetics and toiletries don’t have the same ring about them.
- What earthly event marks when an angel gets its wings?
Quasimodo knows the answer to this better than anyone.
- What happens on the Winter Solstice?
Plenty of ski-ing, beer and ice cream…….. but not necessarily in that order.
- How did the tradition of the Yule log originate?
Mrs Claus ran out of pastry for mince pies and had to improvise pretty sharpish when Santa got home so she decorated a log from the pile intended for their pot belly stove.
