Odds and Ends

Dont Be a “Cotton Headed Ninimuggins” and Take The Elf Quiz

It’s that time of year where you go through your DVD’s and videos to find your favorite Christmas movies.  At our house, we collected them from next to grandma’s TV upstairs and the dusty shelves in the garage, as we set out to find all of our favorites that just had to be watched this month.  It just wouldn’t be Christmas with out movies such as “It’s a Wonderful Life” or “White Christmas.”  But our family’s unanimous favorite is “Elf.”  This Christmas season we have already watched it three times!  And we laugh just as much with each viewing.

This movie that we all take delight in watching, gets quoted all year at our house.  If you’re grumpy, someone is sure to say “Does someone need a hug?” or if you’re trying to make the case that you aught to be allowed to eat more candy you might just say “We elves try to stick to the four main food groups:  Candy, Candy Canes, Candy Corn, and Syrup!”  When it comes to quoting this movie, there is nearly a line for every situation.  So, don’t be a “cotton headed ninimuggins” and test your knowledge on this holiday classic by taking the “Elf Quiz” below!  Snuggle up on the couch with your family and some hot cocoa and let us know your answers in the comment section below.  After Christmas I will share the answers and you can see how well you did!  The first person that answers with all the correct answers, just might receive an Elf like award!

  1. Megan,
    I had to comment on this fun post! We also love this movie and enjoy it at least once a year, many lines are repeated all year long at our house too! We each took the quiz and then we have it to our whole family on Christmas Day before we watched it. We graded all the quizzes and Scott won, 16 of the 20 answers right!
