Right, well now it is time for me to make a fool of myself, considering I haven't used any resources I'll have to guess some (if not all!). I thought I best give it a bash as Whirlyguy did take out his time to help me on some problems encountered on the chat. He said I should give it a go, so here goes:

1. His nose.
2. Donner, Blitzen, Dasher, Prancer, Dancer......
3. Erm, I know it is stating the obvious, but how about they are all Christmas songs!
4. They are usually a six sided shape.
5. The 26th, Boxing Day.
6. Holiday Inn?
7. Guessing England.
8. It is an incense/perfume, Myrrh is a precious fabric & Gold is a precious metal.
9. I wasn't even born then!?
10. Adding them up you would get 88.
11. I think it was Marley.
12. Uhm don???t know which song that was in! Sounds more like a line out of ???Debbie does Dallas??? or something of that genre.
13. Some random questions, well I guess it would be dependant on where in the wild it is and if there is any food for it to eat!
14. ?
15. Without a calculator:
Reindeer can travel at 32mph,
Approximately 100 miles per 3 hours (96 miles = 3 hours) thus 3 hours x 250 (a hundredth of 25000) = 750 hours.
So 96 miles per 3 hours x 250 hours = 24000 miles.
With a remainder of 1000 miles; 30 hours = 960 miles.
So far 780 hours = 24960 miles
plus 1 hour = 32 miles
781 hours = 24992 miles
8 miles remaining = 0.25 of an hour
781.25 hours to cover 25,000 miles.
Right my brain hurts now!, hope I have some right!! Must go and get ready to go out.

Catwoman, I believe Rudolph was not actually an official reindeer as quoted in Question 1 in the quiz!

Quote:

1. Rudolf is not one of Santa's official reindeer, but one night he guided the sleigh because part of his body was shiny & red ??? what part was it?

2.Name Santa's official reindeer ??? there are 8 of them (1 point each!)

BLITZEN

Just working on the other questions now!!


I hope you don't mind me pointing this out but I wouldn't like to think you are trying to get extra points!!
