Yuletide Contest: Win yourself a very Naval Austen Christmas!

8 December, 2011 at 3:53 pm 1 comment

I’m a little late this year, but I haven’t forgotten about Molly Joyful’s traditional Yuletide Contest. Some things never change, so you have once again the chance to win a splendid Christmas parcel!

“Pray tell, what may we win?”

The following!

This lovely little book will take you right back to your childhood. Gorgeous gowns for Elizabeth and gentlemanly suits for Mr. Darcy! Never again boring moments under the Christmas tree!

It must be Mr. Bingley’s cheeky smile why this is a favourite of mine (though “Pride and Prejudice” is not my favourite Austen-novel. That would be “Persuasion”, for obvious reasons!)

But wait, that’s not all! For the naval geeks among you, there is

Jane Austen and the Navy, based upon family papers and naval records, shows the novelist as a historian of Nelson’s Navy – not the Navy of great victories at sea but the Navy at home, and of sailors amongst their families and friends – but it is set against the background of war, with Revolutionary and Napoleonic France, fought across the globe between 1793 and 1815.

And that’s STILL not all! Because what would Christmas be without

A SELECTION OF THE BEST CHOCOLATE IN THE WORLD

Real chocolate. Not the tasteless factory stuff – chocolate-chocolate. Milk, dark, white, nuts, orange – your choice.

And what do you have to do to win this parcel full of Yuletide joy?

Just send an email to

joyful_molly  at yahoo.co.uk

and answer the following question:

“What is Molly Joyful’s favourite Austen novel?”

A) Emma

B) Pride and Prejudice

C) Persuasion

Good luck!
