About This Quiz

Santa and the elves don't live in Santa Claus, Indiana, but it doesn't stop the town's citizens from pretending like they do. And the good folks of Buttzville, New Jersey know that you're going to crack a few jokes — so go ahead! You don't have to have postcode envy like the Lorde song talks about; you can move to a town with a unique name instead. Which one is right for you, though? 

To figure out which oddly named town is the place you should lay your head, we're going to need to ask you a few personal questions about your lifestyle.
