This article gives a perhaps ill conceived, Christmas Guysers (Guysering) text for use by children to keep the custom going. The article also appeals for further information from the readers.

The text (58 lines) was compiled from words sent in by readers mostly from Underwood and Brinsley, Notts. Ideas are given for costumes, and the characters are; Opener In, St. George, Slasher, Doctor, Bellzebub and Devil Doubt.
