About This Quiz

If there's one thing we know about the holiday season, it's that Christmas movies frequent the TV. And even with all the variety that we have, no two characters appear more commonly than Santa Claus and Ebenezer Scrooge. These two old men are our Christmas giants, but for totally different reasons: one is a happy man who spends the entire year preparing to make others feel good on this special day, while the other... well, let's just say he does the opposite. And today, we want to find out which of these two you are. 

So, we'll ask you all about your holiday plans. Tell us what you usually do and if you're planning to do anything different this year. We'll also want to know about that personality of yours and how others perceive you. By the end of our questioning, we know we'll have the answer that will reveal whether you're a Christmas grump or the opposite. 

So, if you want to find out which one you are, grab some hot chocolate and buckle down in front of this quiz. Will you be buying gifts in the name of happiness, or buying them for yourself because no one else will?
