They Ate What at Christmas Dinner?

Christmas dinner in 1855, at the Snow residence, featured what exotic meat?

a.      Buffalo

b.      Rattle Snake

c.       Lobster

d.      Antelope

Yesterday’s answer:

a.      Whistling

In Tooele the Saints danced even when a fiddler was not available: “The first dancing party occurred in Bishop Rowberry’s house on Christmas Day 1849. Josiah Call whistled and someone had a Jews Harp, and that furnished the music.”
