Christmas Quiz

Christmas Quiz UPDATE: I have added the answers at the bottom of the quiz.

When it comes to quizzes, I’m not exactly a whiz.  I was never a good test-taker, and I definitely don’t help out very much on our weekly trivia team.

BUT my dad is the trivia king (seriously, we call him “the fountain of useless knowledge”), so I asked him to for some help with these questions.

So let’s test your Christmas knowledge by taking my his quiz!

  1. What does the term “Christmas” stand for?
  2. What American religious group banned Christmas in the 1600s?
  3. When was the first Christmas celebrated?
  4. Where was the first Christmas celebrated?
  5. True or False: In Poland, spider webs are used to decorate Christmas trees.
  6. What year was Christmas made a national holiday.
  7. Who is said to have decorated the first Christmas tree?
  8. About how long are Christmas trees grown until they are cut and sold?
  9. Multiple Choice: Christmas purchases account for how much of all retail sales in the U.S.? a) 1/4 b) 1/6 c) 2/3
  10. What color Christmas card should you NOT send in Japan?

Leave your answers in the comments! I will post an update tomorrow with all the answers, so check back to see how you did!
