  1. Dangerous 'Button batteries'

    It isn't just small children who are in danger. The elderly can become confused and think that they are pills. This happened to my 98 year old Father who was changing his hearing-aid batteries and swallowed them instead. Fortunately I arrived ar that moment and realised what he had done and rang the hospital, which sent an ambulance. We managed to wash them through his body with fizzy drinks, but it was a terrilbe experience for him and involved peroidic x-rays to chek on progress and an overnight stay.

  9. Are we now using the word less rather than fewer? This is always a difficult one I know, but in this context I would use the word fewer. Fewer is used for nouns you can count and less for larger and/or uncountable quantities.
  10. Twelth Night

    Twelth Night traditionally falls on January 5th, and this is when Christmas decorations should be taken down. The night before The Epiphany. Some people believe that Twelth Night is January 6th, but Christmas begins at sundown on the 24th, hence 12th Night being the 5th.
  11. Christmas Day

    The day Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and children wake up to the presents delivered by Santa.
