Holiday Movie Quiz Answer Key
Now that you’ve jotted down your answers to each question, go through this key and count up the respective symbols for each of your answers. For example, if you answered “C” for question one, you’ll write down “heart” and continue down the list. The symbol you have the most of corresponds to the movie that best represents you.

If you scored mostly Christmas trees,
You Are: Christmas Vacation
You LOVE the holidays and revel in tradition and working hard to get things just right. Sometimes, you spend hours planning (some may say “obsessing over”) the perfect experience down to the last lightbulb, and you can’t wait to gather for good, old-fashioned family fun. Just remember, when things don’t go absolutely according to plan—it’s okay! The most important thing is that you’re in it together and that you’re thankful for what you have…crazy cousins and jelly-of-the-month clubs included.
If you scored mostly stars,
You Are: A Charlie Brown Christmas
Sometimes, the holidays can make you feel a little glum. You’re not crazy about the commercial elements of the seasons (good grief!)—you’re more into authentic and genuine experiences, like getting a real tree. You don’t get caught up in the glitz and glam and would rather remind everyone around you what this time of year is really about—spreading peace and goodwill.
If you scored mostly hearts,
You are: The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
When it comes to the holidays, you can be a little bit of a Scrooge. You’re not one for the ribbon and trappings, and you prefer not to focus on gifts. You definitely have your moments where you just wish you could gather everything to do with the holidays in one bag and kick it over the hill. Luckily, a few people in your life (and your dog, Max) always manage to remind you that the holidays have less to do with gifts and more to do with just being together and finding joy in the world.
If you scored mostly bows,
You are: It’s A Wonderful Life
You’re not a stranger to moments of doubt. “Who am I?” and “Why am I even here?” are questions we all face as members of the human race. The holidays are the perfect time to reflect and answer these questions. Whenever you come up against these thoughts, think about how different the world would be without you. Remember—your presence and the decisions you’ve made along the way have touched the lives of many, and your unique journey has made the world a better place.
If you scored mostly snowflakes,
You Are: Home Alone
The holidays at your house are pure chaos. Most of the time, you feel like all you want this time of year is just some peace and quiet. Yet, in the rare moments that you do find yourself alone during the holidays, you find that you actually miss the ruckus. No matter how annoyed you get by each other, remember your family is just that—yours. The time you spend together is the greatest gift of all.
If you scored mostly candy canes,
You Are: Elf
You love sugar, snow angels, sugar, Santa, snowballs, and sugar. Your favorite activities are smiling, spreading Christmas cheer, singing, cuddling, and ice skating. Cynics never get you down—in fact, you bring them up with your contagious spirit! This holiday, be sure to share your joy for the season and sing loud for all to hear.
