Feel free to answer the questions and tag 3 bloggers to do the same if you are a person who tags. Personally, I’m not a tagger. It makes me very uncomfortable. Free will and all that, so if you want to answer the questions, please do. Also, a teeny tiny request: “It’s a Wonderful Life” is one of my favorite movies, so try to avoid telling me how much you hated it, okay?
Which is a famous Christmas Ballet?
The Nutcracker, of course. And how many times have I seen it!
Which country first sent Christmas Cards?
England. It was Charles Dickens who got it rolling. He really made Christmas “big.”
Pigs in blankets are what?
Cocktail wieners. Not a personal favorite.
Between 1647 – 1660 who banned Christmas in England?
Probably the Roundheads (Puritans). They banned anything that might be considered fun.
How many candles are there in a traditional Advent Wreath?
In “It’s A Wonderful Life,” what is the name of George’s guardian angel?
Clarence, but he didn’t have his wings yet. And he loved Mark Twain.
I don’t know. Actually, I didn’t know they did it at all.
What is the birthstone color of someone born on Christmas day?
Blue. There are four of them, but turquoise is my favorite.
Which English actor starred in “The Muppet Christmas Carol”?
What Dr. Seuss character steals Christmas?
Surely the Grinch. He’s still stealing it. Forever and ever. He never learns.
