Excerpt from Drawing Room Games Every feast day of the year has its special significance, observances and diversions, but in this little book it would be impossible to try even to enumerate them all. This I shall not attempt to do, but choosing the festivals most familiar to us, I shall briefly describe them and their various rites and add here and there a few games which, having in themselves no marked significance, will adapt themselves, not alone to the season under discussion, but, for that matter, to any period in the twelvemonth. To enter properly into the spirit of a game one must lay aside for the time being, at least, all association with and thought of "carping cares" and other disturbing elements, for half-way measures are no more adapted to pleasure than they are to work. With the mind distracted from the occupation of the moment - be it work or play - by some outside issue, it is difficult, well nigh impossible, indeed, to take part in and enjoy, much less benefit, by the matter in hand.
