Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 7141
obdormition, carol, nativity, mistletoe
It wasn't much of a Christmas do,
I wish I hadn't gone;
They sang some carols at the start
Then everything moved on.
They'd hung the mistletoe upon
The roof of the Nativity scene,
So anyone with a kiss in mind
On the manger they had to lean.
And the final blow was the duff mincepies
That were laced with a sedative potion
And enough stale rum to fell a horse
And gave everyone obdormition.
