About This Quiz

There's your regular personality, and then there's your Christmas personality. The holidays are stressful! All the details that go into preparing are enough to make anyone go through a total metamorphosis. When you're making your list and checking it twice, what sort of personality comes out? Do you turn green like the Grinch, or do you have the contagious spirit of Tiny Tim? 

During this quiz, you'll get to tell us about the way you deck the halls. You'll lead a shopping trip, share your gift-giving traditions and drop a hint about what you want from Santa. No matter how large or small the detail, all of your Christmas choices will point the way to the kind of person you become when you've been listening to carols for months on end. 

Are you able to hold it together well enough to spread glad tidings and good cheer? Or would you rather find a remote cave to celebrate caveman style? Don't be a Scrooge with your answers, and you'll give away your unique brand of Christmas personality. Is it the same as your everyday one, or do you turn into someone Santa barely recognizes on Christmas Eve? Before you get a lump of coal in your stocking, you'd better find out!
