    Putting the FUN in funeral.
    Quite a few years ago when I worked for the RAC, at this time of year, my department started to think about our ‘Christmas Break Sweep Stake’ The Black Bauble
    i.e. Which celebrity or famous person (including has-beens) will kick the bucket between Christmas Eve and 12th night.
    (24 Dec 2018)- (5 Jan 2019)

    Rules:
    1; place your suggestion here by 23:59 hrs on 23rd December
    2; the death has to be announced in a traceable press release between Christmas Eve and the end of January.

    Prince Phillip has already been baggsied so I will sadly go with HM the Queen.
