Instead of listing 78 personal things in this German baton found at the Prinzzess’, I took the answers from what came into my mind at once when I saw this countdown from 12: The Uncle Scrooge comic “The Thrifty Spendthrift”) by Carl Barks from 1963, based on the old Christmas carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. :) Even though Easter is almost there…


(If you want, though, you can pick up this baton and answer it seriously…)
