THE CHRISTMAS QUIZ

It's that time of year again! What better way to celebrate the holidays than to review some of that holiday trivia? Not all of it is THAT trivial, though. I hope you do quite well on this. Feel free to share it with your friends and maybe someone on your mailing list. Brighten someone's day : )
