Ah, November is here, the clocks have gone back, and there is frost on the ground this morning. The nights are drawing in fast - as are the closing dates of many of our favourite Christmas quizzes. Pour yourself a large stein of mulled wine, settle down beside the fire and get cozy with a quiz.

Check back to the October Quizzes and Puzzles Round Up thread to see quiz and puzzle results updates, thanks from setters and how much money was raised!

NOTICE: Please remember it is vital that you add contact details i.e. email or postal address, the closing date, the cost, where the quiz funds will be going and the theme of the quiz, thanks.

If you have already added your quiz elsewhere to AB you can just post the link to the question as an answer to this one.

Please could you post one quiz per answer to avoid confusion, thank you.
