If you picked mostly As and Bs, you are the Grinch! You think “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” is overplayed and you’ll more than likely receive a big lump of coal in your stocking this year. Christmas is definitely not your holiday and you’re counting down the days until it’s all over. 


If you picked mostly Cs and Ds, you are Santa Claus! You’re obsessed with anything festive, like picking out a new scented candle, decorating the tree, and baking holiday cookies. Christmas can’t come soon enough for you.
