      Fun lens! I ended up having to repeat the words to the whole song or verse for many of these in order to get the answer. I must brush up on my Christmas carols! :)

      70%. I am Elf Smart! I wonder...can I put this on my resume when applying for parttime holiday employment at Santa's workshop? I would prefer indoor work to working out in the stable as I am allergic to reindeer dander. Thumbs up on this quiz!

      @John Dyhouse: I've never had that problem. I'll have to keep a closer eye out. I hope you sent a bug report so tech knows.

      I'm a Jolly App. just in time for shopping. LOL

    • John Dyhouse profile image

      John Dyhouse 7 years ago from UK

      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

      I didn't do very good at all! Some of those carols I've never heard of or never listened very close to before. This quiz was fun anyhow!

      LaurieBeth33 8 years ago

      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!

    • stacy mcdaniel profile image

      stacy mcdaniel 8 years ago

      I made 50%. I should have known more than that. I need to study my Christmas carols.

      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!
