Make sure your Christmas trivia is up-to-scratch

One of the main things to remember when it comes to Christmas trivia quizzes is the fact that you have a solid basis when it comes to guessing what some of the quiz questions are going to be about. There are no excuses here: you have to make sure your Christmas trivia is up to scratch!

So, did you know that Santa Claus’ outfit was originally predominantly green? And it was only changed to red by Coca-Cola? Or that KFC is a traditional Christmas meal in Japan? If not you better get working on your Christmas trivia!

Think tactically about who is creating the quiz

Some Christmas quizzes aren’t made by anyone you know, however, if your family and friends have decided to create their own Christmas quiz it is a prime opportunity to switch on your tactical quiz brain.

Find out who is in charge of the Christmas quiz questions, and then brainstorm to see what the most likely things they are going to ask will be. You can then do a targeted research session, and hopefully you’ll therefore know a host of the answers!

Assemble the best Christmas quiz team you can

Is your Christmas quiz a team quiz? If so this is a golden opportunity to try and assemble the best Christmas quiz team that you possibly can. Just think about it: if you know that you can trust each member of your Christmas quiz team you are bound to do well – it’s a no-brainer!

Another thing to remember here is to make sure that your Christmas quiz team is full of people with different knowledge specialisations, this way you know that you’ve got all potential quiz question angles covered.

Watch the Christmas wine!

Obviously nobody is saying that a healthy amount of Christmas wine is illegal during a Christmas quiz, however you will definitely want to watch yourself when it comes to your alcohol consumption.

Your Christmas quiz score is bound to go down the drunker you get, and nobody wants to face the embarrassment of losing the Christmas quiz just because they were too drunk!
