The tree is decorated with “champagne” bottles and party poppers to put us in the party mood, along with the more traditional crackers and baubles.
The eagle-eyed youngsters will also spot several small packets of chocolate buttons, in lieu of party bags. Why? Because there is also a competition to guess the number of holes in 100 buttons contained in a jar – of course not all buttons have the same number of holes! The nearest guess to the right number on each of the two days will win a full size bag of chocolate buttons.
