Christmas Quiz

I love a good quiz... It mustn't be too hard but it's got to keep my attention for more than a microsecond. I've been writing short Christmas quizzes to amuse my family for years and I thought you guys may like to have a go. This is a literary quiz; see how many of the following you can identify (they're all at least vaguely related to Christmas). They may be from films, songs, poems or books. Googling is for the sad and lonely. And there's only one I don't believe you will get (I'll have dinner with the first person to identify it correctly).

Identify the origin of the following:

1. Next, a medley of decorations, made by assorted Stanton children, ranging from Will’s infant pipe-cleaner reindeer to a beautiful filigree cross, that Max had fashioned out of copper wire in his first year at art school.

2. A veil of tears for the Virgin birth

3. Christmas Day we all played football
In the mud of No Man’s Land;
Tommy brought some Christmas pudding,
Fritz brought out a German band.

4. I can't fly! I haven't got my wings.

5. A noble dish is a turkey, roast or boiled.

6. And for the more suretie that this is my full and last will, I have signed this my testament with my hande, the XVI of Decembre aforesaid in the Xth yere of Kyng Henry the VIIIth.

7. Why should the world take notice of one more love that failed?

8. On Christmas night, a dozen girls piled onto the bed, which was the dress circle, and sat before the blue and yellow chintz in a most flattering state of expectancy.

9. The Monday I carried Ronnie Joe Waddell’s meditation in my pocketbook, I never saw the sun.

10. My name is Stephanie Plum and I’ve got a strange man in my kitchen.

 

I'll post the answers in another story between Christmas and New Year.
