Hark! A Christmas Blog Contest! - Day 4

And now... the answers from the last two days.

Day 2's answer was "Hark! The Harold Angels Sing" (don't worry, those will get progressively harder).

Yesterday's answer was actually b) a parasitic infection. (It should be noted that this was the only correct one among the available choices. There is another theory that it may have been caused by a trait reindeer have that allow them to adjust the specific location where they need heat in their bodies, but it has also not been proven.)

In this article from Parasitol Today, Dr. Halvorsen claims that a parasite with immunities to freezing temperatures is responsible for the famous red nose.

Of course, it could also just be magic.

I also have a prize to show you from the final baskets! Okay, it's not actually in physical form, but you can have your very own, downloaded copy of the Piano Guys' Christmas album, A Family Christmas. All three winners will receive a downloadable copy of the album.

Today we're having another Christmas Carol!

Nocturnal timespan of unbroken quietness.

Good luck!

P.S. Hey pie peeps! Here's a cherry pie recipe for your trouble!


  1. Silent Night (these really do need to be harder)

  2. Silent Night, Holy Night.

    So you're really going to come up with 24 pie recipes? I liked including quiche; that was tricky. -RenaissanceWoman on Ravelry
