Today was a holiday party for work. It was held at Restaurant Pavlov in The Hague. That place is a lot bigger than it looks from the outside! The food included things such as cinnamon rolls (that one was new for me, but it was tasty), salmon wraps, wraps with goat’s cheese, pears soaked in cinnamon sauce, pumpkin soup and more.
We also held a round of trivia, including such questions as:
How many desserts are there during a traditional French Christmas dinner? 13 (it represents Jesus and the 12 apostles, according to Wikipedia).
Which country gives London the Trafalgar Square Christmas tree? Norway.
In which country is the Poinsettia plant commonly found? Mexico.
In America there is a Christmas event called “Running of the Santas”. What type of event is this? A bar crawl (visiting many bars to drink).
How do you say “Merry Christmas” in Dutch? Prettige feestdagen (and other ways).
How many points/sides are in a snowflake? 6. (Read the scientific explanation.)
Whose story was used for A Nightmare before Christmas? Tim Burton’s.
Who wrote the score for The Nutcracker? Tchaikovsky.
All in all, a fun event.
