Christmas Clue at Brownella

Who saw Santa at Brownella Cottage? It’s up to you to find out.

Bishop Brown and his wife, Ella, invited several friends to their home for an early Christmas celebration dinner. The house was decorated to perfection, the aroma of cinnamon and cloves filled the air. While enjoying a delicious meal, in the dining room, unexplained noises startled the Browns and their guests. Although not relishing the idea, they decided to investigate. The Browns and their dinner guests separated.

While moving through the cottage, one of the diners discovered the source of the disturbance. As sometimes happens around the Christmas holiday, Santa Claus was surprised to be “caught in the act!” Astonished, Santa offered the guest one of the presents from his large, red sack as a plea for silence.

So the game begins …

1. Who discovered Santa Claus in Brownella Cottage?

2. What was Santa’s “bribery gift?”

3. In what room was Santa discovered?
