It's December 24th 1933 and tonight is the traditional Christmas Eve party which has been hosted by the Asquith-Jones family of Cerne Abbas, Dorset for at least three generations. It’s a vitally important event for the family as it is the one occasion every year that the Asquith-Jones use to demonstrate how much taste, sophistication and most importantly money they have in comparision to the St John-Smythe family. Plus they get to show the St John-Smythe family how to throw a party before the St John Smythe's New Years Eve party.
So far everything hasn’t proceeded exactly as planned. The radio forecast predicted heavy snow and so everyone arrived a day early and had to stay overnight, instead of arriving today. It has thrown Cook into a complete whirl. The heavy snow fell as predicted overnight and it now appears that everyone will need to stay for Christmas as well and this news has thrown the rest of the staff into chaos.
Worse than this however is the fact that Theodore St John Smythe the head of the family had the audacity to be found dead this morning. It’s all very inconvenient.
Ho Ho Ho - Remember tis the season to be jolly ……………………..
Join the Asquith-Jones, the St John-Smythes and their friends for Christmas Eve and ensure this is a party that will go down in history.
