First sentence: "Strictly speaking, there were only six Poor Travellers; but being a Traveller myself, though an idle one, and being withal as poor as hope to be, I brought the number up to seven.

Last sentence: "And there I told of worthy Master Richard Watts, and of my supper with the Six Poor Travellers who were neither Rogues nor Proctors, and from that hour to this I have never seen one of them again."

This short story tells the tale that entertains six travellers after finishing Christmas dinner. Here again the story that is told, has nothing to do with Christmas, but luckily it is told on Christmas Eve.
