Christmas Movie Quiz

Every year I manage to ruin Christmas for Sean’s family in some way. It’s kinda my thing now. One year I punched him in the stomach while we were opening presents. I think I’ve managed to curb that instantaneous reaction now, and haven’t punched anyone on a whim since.

Another year, his family did Christmas games with quizzes about holiday movies, songs, traditions, etc. Since I start my Christmas spirit mid- to late-summer, I generally have an edge up on these things, so I ruined Christmas that year by winning every. single. game. I did  give my prizes away to other family members, but they never did Christmas games again…

Anyway, I thought it’d be fun if I spread the joy on to you to test your Christmas knowledge. Don’t use Google, because that’s a thousand times less fun. So, here we go:
