Linda Lee — My personal bridge blog

My Holidays Bridge Stories

In a moment of lunacy I decided that I would write a bridge story for each of the twelve days of Christmas.  The idea was that I would write a blog each day from December 25th until Januray 5th that would loosely match the appropriate line in the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”  So my first blog would in some way relates to “a partridge in a pear tree” and so on.

It didn’t take long for me to realize that this would be quite a challenging task.  I also realized that in most cases the main things was to find a good bridge hand – the story would follow.  Starting with a story was not nearly as effective.

There are many real people named in the blogs.  Some of them are bridge players and in some cases the stories relate to the way they play bridge or think about bridge.  In some cases I have used friends or family members who don’t play bridge in real life (sadly for them) but the comments I make about them are true.  For example my sister Judy is one of the nicest people I know and my friend Margaret really is going to try to find the perfect climate in the South of France, this year.

Most of the hands in the blogs are made up although one or two occurred at the table.

I hope you enjoy the stories and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
