Blogmas: A 2020 Christmas Quiz

So far I’ve had two Christmas Zoom calls since the announcement the North East is staying in Tier 3, and I have another couple planned in for this week. Pretty disappointed to find ourselves back here, and I’m feeling very sad for anyone in the south who has been sticking to rules and can’t now do what they planned this Christmas after the announcement yesterday. I’m sure we had all hoped zoom calls and quizzes were a thing of the past. That’s not the case though, and here we are again. In situations like this all we can do is try our hardest to make the best of it. Whether you’re having a zoom call with people you can’t physically see in person, or want a family quiz to do on Christmas Day after your turkey then here’s a 2020 Christmas quiz for you.

There are a total mix of rounds, starting with a Christmas round, there had to be a COVID one seen as it’s dominated the entire year, but it’s not all been about that. There’s been sport, TV, film, so there’s rounds for all of those, plus a Friends round as some of my friends love this and a Christmas song emoji round. Feel free to use any or all, and answers are at the end.

Good luck playing the 2020 Christmas Quiz!
