Christmas Animal Quiz

Last updated:

Because Christmas animals are an important part of the celebrations. Here’s another awesome Christmas quiz for you. This time the category is animals. You will find that there are lots of animals coming up in all areas of Christmas. Do this as a quiz on your next video call this Christmas with friends and family. Or add some of the questions as a round to a wider epic Christmas quiz.

We like to take turns asking a round of questions with our family. Everyone picks a topic and asks 5 questions. It’s fun to see what everyone comes up with. Although we do end up taking ages as we all seem to have to discuss and debate every answer! We are a family full of opinions it would seem. 

Get into the festive spirit and host a Christmas quiz this year. It’ll be something fun to focus on when so many of us are socially distancing and staying at home. Good luck!

And if you want more Christmas quiz inspiration, we have loads for you to enjoy:
