I am looking for the warm wine
I was told “Come, come! we’ll serve warm wine
& there will be many kippered fish, too”
please point me toward the kippered fish
I confess ignorance of this tradition where
a common egg is apparently pickled
(purple) & kept in a large jar w/ many purple eggs
does each partygoer receive a pickled food item
before the sing-along? b/c
there might be quite a delay as guests are
seated at the table according to name cards
invariably a partygoer will remark &
I will respond: Yes that is my Christian Name &
no, I am not aware of the prevailing exchange rate!
