I did fairly well. I had my boss take this quiz and she did really well. She got about 20 out of the 25. I love "The Christmas Card" - I really need to borrow that from you!!!!!

Great post! I'll add a link to it when I update my blog...doing one about Christmas music.

I did ok, some of those were really hard! Living with you helped me to ace some of those questions, such as "The Christmas Card" and Sam Elliot starring in Prancer, and the North Pole being in Alaska :)

That was fun! Thanks for sharing!

I got 14 correct. I need to brush up on my Christmas movies!

Although #13 is incorrect if you are referring to a composer. I was confused. Josef Mohr wrote Silent Night. Franz Gruber did the music. Oberndorf is the name of the village, and it is near Salzburg, Austria. Sorry, that's what you get from a historian...

Fun quiz. Did you come up with everything yourself? That would be a lot of work!
