Marbles, guines and spinning tops are played in Springtime. Bid-burn, skipping and ball are played in Summer. In Autumn children spend all their spare time picking blackberries. In Winter sliding, snowballing and making snowmen are another great source of amusement for children.
In Winter a crowd of people collect in one house and tell stories and riddles while sitting round the fire. Sometimes they play cards for instance whist, beggar my neighbour, snap, old maid and many other games.
While playing games there are many expressions which sound silly, for instance "bid your straighter" "Bid-burn" and many others which only children understand.
