If you are over 20 years old then you've lived through 20 or more holiday seasons. After 20 seasons you should know the answers to the following questions. Oh no, there's no getting out of it; if you don't answer every question COMPLETELY, then you are a GRINCH!

Happy holidays, everyone!


This is just for fun, but Santa won't visit your house if you go online to find the answers! Feel free to add your own Xmas trivia questions.

1. Name all of Santa's reindeer.

2. What are the 12 gifts of Christmas?

3. Recite ALL of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas'.

4. High Marks if you can name the composer of: 'Have a holly Jolly Christmas', 'Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer', and 'Rockin' around the Christmas Tree'.

5. In the movie 'It's a Wonderful Life' starring Jimmy Stewart, what is the name of George Bailey's guardian angel?

Christmas is just an excuse for me to drink pricier scotch. Unfortunately, I will be unable to answer any of your questions.

Sorry, man. These questions are too hard. Some of us could probably just about answer them all--but it's not worth the amount of work.

I'll give you Johnny Marks for "Holly Jolly," etc., and Clarence for George's guardian angel. But the others are just flat-out hard work....

I can not answer any of you questions without good old google lol . But I do love Christmas and here's why - family & friends. Love them or loath them or just think their plan nuts. To me it's nearly the only time in the yr I get to catch up and I mean really catch up.

It may be overly commercialise for most including me. But take from it what you want, make the most of time off work if lucky enough. Eat too much, drink too much and even way too many kisses. I will have to admit to being excited buy giving and receiving the odd present.

As for the jolly man in a red suit, well we do sometimes catch a glimpse of him every now and then down under, but with the heat I would assume most the time he's of having a cold beer.

Eta: s&f as a gift
Merry Christmas to you

#2
A Partridge in a Pear tree,Two Turtle Doves,Three French Hens, Four Calling Birds, Five Golden Rings,

Six Geese a laying.Seven Swans a swimming,Eight Maids a milking,Nine Ladies dancing,Ten Lords a leaping,

Eleven Pipers piping, and Twelve Drummers drumming.


#3 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

**********************************************************************************************

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
Santa and his sleigh on the new-fallen snow
"Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!
On, COMET! on CUPID! on, DONDER and BLITZEN!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

**********************************************************************************

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes -- how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

************************************************************************************

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
"HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!"

LOL I don't want you to write them down. Just wanted to know if anyone is more observant than I am. With 57 holiday seasons under my belt, I couldn't answer the questions either. Why?

I've watched the Wizard of Oz a few times in my life, and I could probably come up with a LOT of the dialogue. But, with the holiday songs n' stuff, each and every year I've heard them again and again and AGAIN! So, not being able to remember this stuff - is it the brain's attempt at self-preservation? Would my head explode if I DID collect all of this kind of information? I dunno.
