The Bingo Season
If you didn't know that bingo has a season, read on!
Every Hobby has a Season
That is correct, every hobby and pastime has its season. Kite flying is best accomplished in the fall, ice skating and skiing are generally considered winter sports and swimming is clearly a summer sport. The season of book reading and bingo games is clearly the winter. Books are best read cuddled up in a warm blanket in bed or on a pleasant recliner. This is best accomplished at the end of a winter day as a way of warming the bones and resting up after a freezing outing. Bingo halls also seem to tend to more packed during the winter (although particularly rainy days seem to keep home all but the most loyal of players - this is clearly seen at bingo games held at a casino where a good shower can cut the customer level significantly). There are probably several reasons for this phenomenon to exist. Perhaps I will describe some of my theories for why this should be so in a later entry. There is no room for doubt though, as the cold winter air sets in, the sky turns dark in midday and the streets get filled with water in all it various incarnations, the bingo halls are packed and the games are running as hot as ever! The scene of a chilly winter evening with a bingo hall full of sweaty and excited players, sipping from mugs of coffee and waiting anxiously for the next number to come up is something that I is completely inseparable from the bingo experience. Of course, you can play bingo all year round much as you can go ice skating at a skating rink whenever you feel like. It is only the season of bingo which is being addressed here!
