In case you couldn’t make it to my Beers and Cheers holiday Trivia Night at Ventnor Sports Cafe, here’s a little taste of what you missed.
Round 1 was all about classic Christmas movies. Now, normally, Round 1 is stuffed with “easy” questions. But I’d like to think I cranked it up a notch or two for this special occasion. For one, these are “classic” Christmas movies. Ones you’ve seen a hundred times. So there’s already not a lot that you don’t know about them. Secondly, I ran the risk of people actually studying up for this quiz. So I dialed it up just a bit.
Feel free to use these at your family gathering, or just shame you cocky uncle about how little he knows about Christmas movies.
