Here's a little preview of some of the Christmassy questions in the book... Who invented Christmas crackers? An English sweet-maker called Tom Smith invented Christmas crackers about 170 years ago. The story goes that he got the idea for the crackers’ “crack!” while watching logs crackling in his fireplace! Can reindeer see in the dark because the like carrots? You might leave carrots out on Christmas Eve for Father Christmas’s reindeer, but it’s not actually the carrots that help reindeer to see in the dark. Reindeer are able to see a type of light called ultraviolet light, which helps them make their way around in the dark! They do love crunchy carrots, though!
Thank you for all of the questions that have already been sent in for my new book! Keep sending them in!
Wishing everyone a merry snowy December and Christmas, and a happy New Year! Thank you again for the continued enthusiasm and support for Everything Under the Sun! Sending sunshine, Molly x
