About This Quiz

Christmas movies are as much a part of Christmas traditions for many families as eggnog and tinsel. For the better part of a century, Hollywood has been making movies about the season, so not only did most of us grow up with Christmas movies, but our parents and their parents did as well. Some are touching and encapsulate the spirit of the season. Others are deeply hilarious and poke fun at all the craziness and anxiety that come about during the holidays as we try to get ready. Whatever it is you like about the season, or even whatever you may hate about it, there's a movie that perfectly sums up your feelings. And we bet that you look forward to watching it each and every December.

Whether you like an old school favorite like "Miracle on 34th Street" or something more biting and intense like Billy Bob Thornton's darkly hilarious "Bad Santa," there are literally hundreds of different movies to choose from out there. From dramas to comedies, to rom-coms and even a few horror movies, whatever you're feeling this holiday season, we'll do our best to guess which one is your favorite. Take the quiz and see how we do!
