NTU SocSci Festive Pop

This is a quiz that was set up for my work colleagues at a Christmas celebration. A couple of the questions are "in jokes", though they are legitimate questions with correct answers.

It's mainly about UK pop songs that either are about Christmas, or were high in the charts at Christmas in the UK. If you live outside the UK some of these will be tough. Some are tough anyway! But aside from the two which are "in jokes", all the questions could be described as general knowledge, even though some are obscure. There are some nice, easy ones too.
