Young people amuse themselves by playing games at all times of the year. In different parts of Ireland children play different games.
The past-time I have in Autumn is, blackberry picking, nut-cracking, spinning tops. In Winter my favourite games are skipping, Tipping tig, Chase the Fox, hoist the flag, porridge, storytelling, draughts and riddles. The game I like best in Winter is "hoist the flag.
Besides the games I play myself the following games are played also in my neighbour-hood, skating, Lazy Mary, Cock Robin, Donkey and cards.
Girls play different games to boys. The games played by boys are Cow-boy, Football and Indians.
