A Fun Time Was Had By All

"The noise in this room was perfectly tumultuous, for there were more children there, than Scrooge in his agitated state of mind could count; and, unlike the celebrated herd in the poem, they were not forty children conducting themselves like one, but every child was conducting himself like forty."

--from A Christmas Carol, where Scrooge, in the company of the Ghost of Christmas Present, is looking in at Fezziwig's Christmas party.

Sounds like my house at Christmas!
