You know when you forget it’s the ‘festive’ season and your advent calendar remains untouched for a couple of days…? Yeah, sorry about that.
But then you get to pig out on chocolate! Or pork scratchings, as is in my calendar this year. So there is a triplet of questions today. No time-based rewards, just points for getting them right.

‘How to play’ recap
Every day there will be a quiz question. Could be anything – picture, trivia, the CPS announcement of the Stokes charging verdict. Anything.
Reply using the form below the question each day. In general, the first five people to answer correctly get 5,4,3,2,1 points, although this may change on any given day if the question doesn’t lend itself to this format. Bonus points may also make an appearance!
At the end of the 24 days, the winner based on cumulative score will be announced. Updates along the way of course. I’m sure we can rustle up a prize too…
