Mr Al-Khapoun's Christmas Quiz

Mr Al-Khapoun's Christmas Quiz consists of a list of ten or a dozen quotations taken from English and other literature, which you are invited to identify. It appears, usually, in early December and the answers are revealed in the middle of January, or a bit later. It is placed on this page. Sometimes some clues are given in early January. There are no prizes. I have been producing it for public consumption since 1988 (it first appeared two or three years before that in letters from me to the late Dr Peter Hall of Tuscaloosa, Alabama).
