  1. I did so much better on your quiz than I did on Carl's. I only got two wrong! (Anyway...) Thanks for doing this whole advent calender; it's been a lot of fun. Merry Christmas!

  2. Doh! I cannot believe that I missed the last one. That is by far my favorite episode of WKRP in Cincinatti. I can still remember as clear as if it was yesterday the first time I saw that episode and was laughing so hard that I was crying hysterically.

    Great quiz! Much more accessible than mine, although I figured that at least half of my 6 were dead giveaways for those who've loved Christmas movies in the past.

  3. So much fun! I only missed two or three! Merry Christmas! :)

  4. I did better on your quiz than I did on Carl's. :-) This was a fun idea!
    Thank you to both Marg and you for hosting the advent tour this year. It was great fun visiting everyone's site and spending a little bit of the holidays with them.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. A Festivus miracle! This has become such a part of my family vernacular-- great quiz.

  6. Have a great Christmas !
    (I love the grinch song! lol)

  7. Yay! I got all of yours right!!!

  8. I didn't know any of Carl's but I did know a fair few of yours!

    1. dentistry

    2. Collard greens

    3. O.J. Simpson

    4. piggy pudding

    5. their wings

    6. his heart

    7. a Hula Hoope

    8. I'm guessing here but knowing that character, it must be "the best thing he's ever eaten"

    9. Again, I'm guessing it's "feats of strength"

    10. Burgermeister Meisterburger?

    11. stink, stank, stunk!

    12. Les Nessmen

  9. Merry Christmas Kailana!!! This Advent Calendar has been wonderful! Thanks so much to you and Marg for hosting it. Hope you have a great Christmas :)

  10. Great idea for your posts! I didn't do that great on either of them, but I did get Love Actually, actually! LOL!!!

  11. Well, I haven't done Carl's yet (and I didn't cheat...) but I only missed numbers 8 and 9 on yours.

    Neat idea, you two. Merry Christmas to you both!


  12. This was a really fun quiz, even though I got half wrong. I guess I'm the grinch. Or maybe the scrooge.

    Merry Christmas!

  13. I am glad everyone enjoyed the quiz! I borrowed it from the paper, sadly. It seemed like fate. I had no time to work on it, and then they printed it, and then I actually sat down and read the paper. I was at work and was quizzing the person I work with. It worked for me!

    Merry Christmas everyone! Thanks to all that joined in and participated in the Calendar. I can't wait to do it again next year! Best wishes!

  14. That's cute! Merry Christmas, Kelly.

  15. Fun! And the entire Advent Calendar was great this year. Thanks so much to you and Marg for organizing/hosting it! Have a very Merry Christmas,
