Contest winner receives early Christmas present

Christmas came early for Peter Marval, media artist in the Centre for Teaching and Learning, as he won yesterday’s DailyNews contest and two free tickets to the Festival of Christmas choral concert, Sunday, December 4, at 3 p.m. at Assumption Church.

So’s name was drawn from all respondents who correctly noted that Merry Christmas wishers demand figgy pudding; that wassailers are generally not picky and will accept cider, mulled wine, punch or spiced ale; and that if you haven’t got a penny, a ha’penny will do.

Tickets to Sunday’s concert are $10 general admission and $5 for students, available in advance by phone at 519-253-3000, ext. 4212; or online at Tickets also available at the door. Find more information on the music Web site.
