Little About Trivia

Trivia has an unknown beginning from which it first came about. Long ago in ancient times the word meant "something new". Now in the 15th century, the term meant unimportant matters, more or less it wasn't important enough to be concern about out. The first trivia quiz begin on February 5, 1965 which seems to be a popular game. National Trivia Day, January 4, 2015 is on Sunday, which honors those who know a lot of facts.

There are some who think of trivia as a waste of time with a bunch of useless facts while others enjoy learning new facts. Really it depends on the person. Trivia may be considered a bunch of old dried up facts but there are those who enjoy playing the games and then are those who take pride in knowing the facts who considers them interesting.

Along the way, you'll find some interesting history about different questions that will be asked. Answers will be in the next post as this is a two part post, so why not try playing this trivia against family and friends. Who will be the winner in the group you play against or maybe you will play in teams.
