No. 1 isn't as complicated as you think it is. Done 'em all, can we have some more as a fill-in, to keep us busy while we're waiting for the next lot pls?

Could be wrong but think he meant he's stuck on one of the questions.

I'm currently stuck on Q's 3 and 4, but I'm sure I'll work them out. Lisa x

Yeah, actually No 5 is the one I was stuck on, but have only had a short time. If last years are anything to go by the later bunch are much harder. Not asking for help (yet) want to think about it. good luck , and yes a fill -in quiz would be great, except my wife might not think so.

eg

1 partridge
+
1 partridge
2 turtle doves

etc

but you can also get into the realms of is the partridge + tree 2 gifts or one, do the drummers count as 2, ie drummer and drum, etc,

the answer to this is the simple one

Take your time with working 4 & 5 out & just remember that it all has something to do with Christmas, so that will narrow the answers down a bit.
Good luck all

No need to panic if you dont get them all as you only need to get 25 out of 30 to be entered into the prize draw.
