Some eleven years ago I created this multipart quiz. I'm brushing off its cobwebs for re-offering this season, while we're all still incubating.

Each "day" of Christmas points towards someone or something in any of the series' four seasons. Beginning today, this quiz will run through Christmastide (5 January). Enjoy.

The First day of Christmas: A quail under glass, or a la pearatrese.

Pretty sure I saw something like that in the warehouse before it blew up in TNOT Deadly Bed.

The Second Day of Christmas: Two turtledoves. Yes, really.

By the way, the last time we played this game people made multiples guesses, conjuring legitimate answers I never had in mind. Feel free to let your imaginations frolic. 'Tis the season.

The Third Day of Christmas: Three French hens (metaphorically speaking)

Where are the other Regulars? Cal gal? Nydiva? Sordo? Maybe they're celebrating the holiday season in less nerdy ways.

Capital idea. What if we all resolved to do more of that next year?

The Fifth Day of Christmas: Five Gold Stings

If it's any consolation, I have no idea what I was thinking when I made these up over ten years ago. When I hand out the feathers, I'll have to cheat by returning to my first run.

I'm thinking of Flying Pie Plate, though that probably only counts as one.

This one I remember...in TNOT Vicious Valentine there were 5 targets!

This is in TNOT Big Blackmail. I will tell you, it has been a long time since I have watched many episodes, so I am not remembering episode names or details

Thanks ccb...I peek in once every few months. I thought working from home would give me more time to do that, but it doesn't.

Oh dear. I instantly thought of one of the reunion movies where Artie disguised himself as a dancehall girl.

There's TNOT Returning Dead, where Artie plays Jeremiah's flute.

Considering one of the meanings of drummer, Artie's 'Honest John' disguise in TNOT Bubbling Death.

Oh you're right! That time it was Jeremy Pike being a drummer.
