0: Christmas Grinch
Perhaps Christmas isn’t your holiday. Perhaps it is and you just didn’t know the facts. Whatever the case, you might want to check to see if your heart is two sizes too small…
1-2: Christmas Elf
As an underling of the great St. Nick himself, you are instructed to know a bit about the facts and traditions of Christmas, but not much. You might know too much if you did.
3-4: Christmas Superfan
The difference between you and the elves is you don’t have a knowledge restriction. Perhaps you had an encounter with St. Nick, or you just know the holidays, but you know your stuff.
5: Santa Claus
I did not know Santa went to WCHS (or maybe you looked at the answer key). Whatever the case, you got all questions right and so you must be Santa Claus. It’s just basic logic.
