Family Christmas Quiz

Last updated:

This year has certainly been the year of online quizzes, hasn’t it? We have been hosting family quiz nights on Zoom on an almost weekly basis of lockdown. This pandemic has changed the way so many of us interact and it has now become the norm for us to socialise on video calls and online. 

In the UK we have just had our second lockdown and to keep family spirits high we have been getting into the festive mood as soon as possible. Just this past weekend we organised a family Christmas quiz where everybody joined the Zoom call wearing something festive along with their own drink of choice and some nibbles. 

We then spent the next couple of hours playing the quiz. It always seems to take us longer than most people as our family seem to have to discuss and debate almost every question and answer. Everyone has an opinion in our family! Ha!

The Christmas quiz was so much fun and we laughed so much. In the spirit of sharing, we thought you might also like to do the same, and to save you time on coming up with questions you can see the questions and answers below to use how you wish.

We hope you enjoy your Christmas quiz with family and friends.
