Wha-? Did that make national headlines or something?
If you say so.

B25: Who is Kris Kringle?
Santa Claus, in Europe? Germanic countries?
[Meh, the answer doesn't say where, just "Santa Claus"]

B26: How many days after Jesus was born did the Three Wise Men visit him?
Let's go with the theme of three wise men and three gift... who arrived three days after he was born?

Nope. Twelve.


Is that why "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is something special?
If I really cared I'd look it up.

Wow. I'm ending on such a high note, not!
