Dwarf's Quiz

I thought I'd bring you all a little quiz to exercise those grey cells.
  1. What is the connection between these seemingly unrelated words ? hijack, defence, first, unopened, stupid
  2. Can you explain how 4 - 1 = 5 ?
  3. How many gifts are delivered by My True Love in the song The Twelve Days of Christmas ?
  4. Can you prove that you have 11 fingers (for this question, thumbs also count as fingers) ?
  5. Can you decipher the following:
    • 2 Y U R 2 Y U B I C U R 2 Y 4 ME
    • 23 P of C in the H B
    • 32 is the T in D F at which W F
    • 29 D in F in a L Y
    • 13 S on the U S F
  6. A movie actor/director died on this day (25th December). He was famous for having a cane and a bowler hat. Who was he, and in which year did he die ?
  7. Again on this day (25th December), what object was stolen from Westminster Abbey and in which year ?
  8. In which year was the popular Charles Dickens novel A Christmas Carol written and first published ?
  9. An easy one this: Who is the main character in the above novel ?
  10. Can you pair up the following carols with their correct tunes (title of carol; tune):
    • O come, all ye faithful; Mendelssohn
    • In the bleak mid-winter; Irby
    • Angels, from the realms of glory; Adeste Fideles
    • Hark! the herald angels sing; Cranham
