Guys and guysses, thank you for this enthusiastic reaction to my latest riddle about the toy soldier.

What about the 3 pending riddles? Do you really have no idea or you missed them????

I mean these:

A difficult one, indeed: But think logically again - if it is not for eating, what is it for? What is the partner of eating??????????????????

There is still one riddle pending in post 6. Hint - I said it is food but not for eating. What for then???

This one is easy for a person who knows Polish culture
What is this Christmas time custom which I am exploiting to make fun of a relative who dropped by with presents?

The last one should be also easy for a Polish culture oriented person:

Three Kings` Holiday in Poland. What is a funny language mistake which some people in Poland make when talking about the holiday???

funny language mistake which some people in Poland make when talking about the holiday???

This one's on the tip of my tongue. I used to know and it's gone from my mind.

Edit, is it t( form of the word król? I forget which way round it is but it's an exception. Krolów or Kroli? Probably Kroli because Krolów sounds right and I've an idea thatit isn't in this case.

I could be imprecise when I suggested a language mistake. Let`s call it a slip of the tongue. :):):)
Hint - When some Poles say the incorrect name of the holiday in Polish, they show that they see double.................... :):):) As if they were drunk.......... :):):)
