Have fun during this festive time of year …and learn a little along the way, with our Christmas Quiz.  Open to both schools and families, there are 10 questions to get your teeth into.  …And this time around the competition won’t close until 9 January 2011 – to give you all a bit longer to reply during this busy time of year. 

The first correct entry out of the hat will win a great selection of windowsill gardening goodies. These will be perfect for getting your growing season started in the new year.  Included are a paper potter, two non electric propagators, two childrens hand trowels, two sets of kids gardening gloves and a kids watering can!

So here are the questions:

  1. What saint is another name for Father Christmas?
  2. Can you name a vegetable that is in season at Christmas time?
  3. True or false – candles were used to decorate Christmas trees before electric lights were invented?  (but don’t try that at home!)
  4. What did my true love send to me on the 12th day of Christmas?
  5. Mistletoe is a hemi-parasitic plant – do you know what that means?
  6. Name 3 things you can find on a nature walk that can be used to decorate the house over christmas
  7. Advent is used to describe the 24 days leading to Christmas, but do you know what the meaning of advent is in Latin?
  8. True or false – in Victorian times mince pies contained beef and spices
  9. Can you name one of the first garden flowers of the new year
  10. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
