The year is 1482. The king and queen have opened the castle doors for their annual Christmas Feaste. But what, exactly, are the strange gifts being delivered to Princess Anne? Duke Dimm obviously has marriage on his mind. But why has a drumline appeared at the castle gate? Who are these birds that keep calling? And, what in the world is Keith Partridge doing in a pear tree? But, the king will not be deterred. The feaste will continue! You are invited to eat, drink, and make merry in the castle hall.
