The Ultimate Christmas Survey

Updated on January 22, 2015

Love Christmas? Hate Christmas? Sound Off About Christmas Here!

Christmas is coming!

For many, it's their favorite time of the year: the gifts, the food, the music, the spirit of the season. What do you love most about Christmastime? What are your favorite Christmas traditions, and how do you feel about various aspects of the holiday? Here's your chance to have a little fun and share your opinions on all aspects of the holiday: what you love, what you perhaps hate, what you might wish is different for Christmas in the future. Most questions are simple multiple choices, although there are a few debates you can join and places to expand on your opinions as well. There are 50 questions in all - for now, although I may add additional questions in the future.

So jump in and see how your opinions about Christmas match up with those of everyone else!
