The 12 Days of All Blacks Christmas

 

Well, hello there. Fancy running into you during this hectic season. Say, friend, why not take a load off. Slip out of those shoes and put your aching feet up by the fireplace, it's crackling and roaring just for you. I'll fetch us a couple glasses of something warm and we can roast some chestnuts, talk about old times and maybe sing along to a few classics. My buddies Richie and Dan will be along soon and we can all join in together. Are you comfortable? Splendid. Now here we go, you know the tune...
