7th Day of Christmas: Quiz Time!

The winner of yesterday’s signed paperback is: Monica Weaver!

12 Days of Christmas

Today will be a little different–as will the prize. Without using Google or a similar website, please, see how you do with this short True or False Regency Era quiz for a chance to win a $75 gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble:

  1. A couple could get an annulment for lack of consummating their marriage?
  2. Duke was the highest title not held by a royal?
  3. People ate Yule Logs (long cakes decorated to look like logs) at Christmas time
  4. An earl’s children are styled Lord First Name (for his son) and Lady First Name (for his daughter)?
  5. In early December a large Christmas tree was erected in front of St. Gregory’s church. This was a large social event that even the Prince Regent attended.
  6. Tinsel was all the rage–so much so that most trees looked silver!
  7. Children were visited on the night of December 24th by a jolly, slightly overweight fellow named Kris Kringle who’d leave them little treats their parents wouldn’t approve of.
  8. Mistletoe was hung over common walkways

Bonus Question:

Lady Olivia Sinclair would have been a hoarder of mistletoe?

    7)Children were visited on the night of December 24th by a jolly, slightly overweight fellow named Kris Kringle who’d leave them little treats their parents wouldn’t approve of. false

    8)Mistletoe was hung over common walkways false

    Bonus Question:
    Lady Olivia Sinclair would have been a hoarder of mistletoe? True

  8. Let’s see:
    1. True
    2. True (but I can’t seem to remember where a Marquess comes into play)
    3. False (though cake, I would prefer)
    4. True

    2. True
    3. False
    4. True
    5. False
    6. False
    7. True
    8. True

    Bonus. Definitely true

    Some of those we hard (watch, I won’t get any right) but that was fun! Let’s see if my obsession with historical romance has paid off!

  10. 1) True, but it wasn’t easy and they’d usually have to have a reason such as impotence for why.
    2) True
    3) False. I’m pretty sure it was an actual log.
    4) False. I think it was Lord Minor Title (if there was a minor title) or Lord Last Name if there wasn’t and Lady Last Name (I think). The second sister was Lady First Name.
    5) False? I haven’t read anything about that, but I guess that doesn’t mean it wasn’t.
    6) False? See previous answer.
    7) False? Wasn’t that Germany?
    8) True.

    Bonus: True. She hordes everything else, so I imagine she’d horde that and maybe use it to play a prank on someone.

  11. 1. False
    2. True
    3. False
    4. False (though a somewhat trick question)
    5. False
    6. False (I’m noticing a theme here… Christmas trees were not common during the regency era. They became common later during the Victorian period.)
    7. False
    8. True/False – I’m not sure, because the question isn’t clear. It was hung in doorways and entryways… places where people commonly walked. It wasn’t hung over walking paths or other places that we would think of as sidewalks nowadays.

    Bonus – Most people are saying true. I’m thinking false.
