      I took the quiz and answered all questions correctly. However the results he results for questions 2,3,4,5 and 7 showed that i had answered these 5 wrong. This happens time and again on the squidoo quizzes. I know it is only fun but it is annoying. Haas anyone else been affected by what seems to be a bug?

      The lens itself is great fun and some of the questions need a little thinking about - thanks

      30% for me. I haven't really heard some of the Christmas Carols and I just had to pick the best amongst the choices. Poor me.

      I've already shared this lens to some of my friends. Hope you could visit my lenses and become a fan of my fb page. Thanks

      80%. I don't know the song "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas," and I did not know the original language of "Silent Night." I may have known that and forgot, though. Great job!

      Yep I must definitely be a Scrooge. The only question I got right wasn't even about the lyrics (what language was silent night). Bah Humbug!
