Christmas Quiz

Welcome to Confused To Confident Where We Celebrate Christmas and Other Holidays

Hello all you wonderful women. I'm going to wrap up the year with a fun quiz to see how much you know about Christmas. I won't have a blog post on Christmas or New Years so, take the time to enjoy the holidays. Remember, if you're feeling overwhelmed with all you have to get done this holiday season, take a couple of minutes to review the post on Enough Time.

You don't have to be Christian to know about Christmas. No matter what your beliefs are, have some fun, give the quiz a shot, and see how you score.

Oh, and by the way, looking up the answers is cheating. This is to see how much you already know.
