In our house we pull crackers just before we eat Christmas lunch and you have to keep your paper hat on the entire meal.

It's the law.


It definitely is the law! We do the same. In that film clip, the guy says his parents made them wait to pull the crackers til after dessert? What?? No!!

I am getting a lot of Error messages when I try to log in. Yesterday it was saying 'Try again in 59 hours'. Today it's 'you have 4 attempts left to log in.'

I'm used the same password and username I've always had!

So are we still doing this? I've still got the dates 23rd December to 6th January as the time, but I suppose if I just start it on the 23rd December it can continue for however long. I will put it in the Members Area to avoid gatecrashers. haha.

I got the Horsemen's names from the book Good Omens- War, Plague, Famine, Death. At least I think that's what they were called! Maybe it's just one of those religious things that changes depending on the interpretation or source? :) For example I hear that Catholics take the story of Judith, the be...

I eat a lot of boiled millet. It is cheap and filling. Make sure you cook it til it's fluffy though so it's nice.

So the 4 horsemen are:

War, Famine, Death and Plague/Pestilence/Disease?
