Christmas Music Quiz

Last updated:

Because we can’t get enough of Christmas quizzes this year we have pulled together a Christmas music quiz. We are so excited to share this one with you. In fact, we will probably keep adding to it because there is so much to Christmas music and pretty much all of us will be aware of Christmas music in some form or another. 

So if you have already worked your way through our previous Christmas quiz questions and answers – full list of Christmas quizzes here – then test out your Christmas music trivia knowledge.


Host a Christmas quiz with work colleagues, family, or friends this Christmas. As always, pick and choose the questions and answers you like best for your quiz. Or if you are feeling epic, go for the whole lot. This quiz has some great Christmas song trivia to test you. 

Also, check out the Christmas Carol Lyrics Quiz, the Christmas Songs Lyrics Quiz to see if you can guess the name of the Christmas carols and songs from just one line of the lyrics. We do love a lyrics quiz (aka name that tune quiz). Plus there is a Christmas number 1s Quiz for you to try.

Now, let’s get to the Christmas music quiz.
