And for those that played last year..these are all NEW questions..no repeats!! *winks*

 

This is Christmas Trivia...Set up similar to Trivial Pursuit.  The catagories are:

 

History, Facts, and Figures

Traditions Around the World

Cartoons, Animation, Made for TV Movies & Specials

Carols and Songs

Movies on the Silver Screen

Literature and the Performing Arts

 

At the beginning of each week, I will post four full sets of questions! I will post a BONUS set when a full set is answered correctly! Correct Bonus set anwers will garner TWO points each!

*C*  correct!

<TA>  try again, wrong answer

sorry!  someone already got the correct answer, and yours may be right or wrong!

 

Be sure to always guess though!  Just because someone gave an answer doesn't mean it was right!

 

The thread will start with this explanation post, the second post will contain ALL the questions!  I will add the new questions to the top of the post as they are answered...after that post anything goes!  You can guess, discuss, argue..LOL  have FUN!

 

This is to challenge your memories and knowlege more than how well you use Google!  Please try to answer on your own!  If you are still stumped after several hours or wrong guesses...A Google would be acceptable!
