About This Quiz

Sometimes life imitates art, though it rarely looks like a Hallmark Christmas special. Find out how your Christmas tree decorating choices reflect your personality and feelings about the holiday season.

If you wait until the last minute to haphazardly decorate a tiny tree, chances are high that you're not feeling particularly joyful about the holiday season. The Christmas movie that might best exemplify your life is "Die Hard." And yes, it's a Christmas movie. We're ready to die on that hill. 

If you spend months planning your Christmas tree decor, spend hours picking out the perfect tree and a week finalizing your ornament placement, your life might be best compared to "Miracle on 34th Street."

Perhaps your tree looks like it was decorated by a distracted 9-year-old with eclectic taste. You might just be in a surprise holiday frenzy a la "Home Alone."

Tell us all about your ornament choices, your tree requirements and your feelings on lights versus candles, and we'll tell you what holiday movie best represents your life.
