A Christmas Quiz (Blogmas Day 15)

Normally after dinner while one of us cleans up, Rich and I hang out in the kitchen and chat about the day, or show the other one funny instagram finds of the day. Today, while Rich was cleaning up I thought it would be fun to do a Christmas Quiz! Below are the questions I asked, Rich's answers, and then at the bottom you'll find the true answers. See how many you get right!

Side Note #1 - I did not take any of the photos in this blog)

Side Note #2 - I didn't type out the ones that Rich got correct... that would be boring.

Side Note #3 - He was also trying to do the dishes at the time and still managed to score really well on the Christmas Questionnaire that I was giving him... He would like for you to know that he is really quite Christmas saavy.

1.) My question: In the song “Frosty the Snowman,” what made Frosty come to life?

Rich's Answer: errr Mrs. Frosty?

2.) My question: Per a recent holiday fad, what “spy” hides around the house, reporting back to Santa on who has been naughty and nice?

Rich's answer: That Shelf Elf!

3. My question: One of Santa’s reindeer shares a name with a famous symbol of another holiday. Which reindeer is that?

The True Answers (i.e. le answer key)

1.) Probably Mrs. Frosty, but they wrote "an old silk hat" in the song for age appropriation

3.) Cupid

4.) Fruitcake

5.) White Christmas

6.) Hensel & Gretyl - Rich's response to this was "ooooooh ya, that makes a lot more sense"

7.) Mistletoe

8.) The Bumpuses

9.) "About six million miles per hour, as reported in The Telegraph. Factoring in the number of children who celebrate Christmas around the world (around 700 million) and the total time Santa would have due to time-zone differences (31 hours), Dr. Katy Sheen, a physicist from Exeter University, determined that Santa would travel so fast that his reindeer would break the speed of sound."

10.) A cookie sheet! hahahaha this one was just a trick.
