Today I had another very busy day. It started off with helping out at a carol service for the year 7s at my school where we sang hymns such as ‘Hark the Herald’, ‘O little town of Bethlehem’, ‘Away in a manger’, ‘Once in Royal David City’ and finally, ‘Come all ye faithful’. This was a very short service before I got back to school for my physics lesson.
After school, my Scout Troop had a fun Christmas evening. We played a reindeer race game (where dice were thrown for each reindeer and the amount it could move) as well as bidding on the reindeer. Each run we bet on one or two reindeer and we also owned the Reindeer “Baby horse doo doo doo …” – which my dad is constantly singing Baby Shark, but unfortunately we did not win with this Reindeer.
Another game which was played was card bingo where hearts kept being called out and in our run we had no heart cards or picture cards. Also, there was a quiz on our leaders where we had to name the leaders from photos as well as other celebrities including Bear Grylls and Lord Robert Baden Powell. Finally, there was a raffle which out of over 50 prizes, we won the 42 prize (half of 84 I may add) and got ourselves some chocolate! We then returned home for some well earned cups of tea.
