Christmas PopQuiz Seems More Coal Than Cool

Christmas PopQuiz Seems More Coal Than Cool

Grinch. Scrooge. Krampus. We've been called all of those for the latest PopQuiz. At least it's no Jelly of the Month.

What was intended to be a fun Christmas gift from us to you seems to have been more like a visit from Krampus than Santa. The Ho-Ho-Holiday PopQuiz edition put your knowledge of off-beat Christmas tunes to the test and not everyone got the gift they hoped for – well, there’s always next year.

MindGames is sponsored by BCA Bearings by NTN.

Because it’s never too late to watch fun Christmas music videos, here are the questions and answers that might have stumped you (click on the highlighted word to see more):

  1. Grandma got run over by a reindeer.
  2. “Oh what fun it is to ride this rusty Chevrolet.”
  3. Because he needs to hurry, Chuck Berry encourages Santa to tell Rudolph to take the freeway down.
  4. In the song of the same name by the Beach Boys, Santa’s bright red hot rod is the Little St. Nick.
