Meg's Christmas Trivia
Meg won a Christmas Trivia card game at her class Thanksgiving party last week. When she asked me if I wanted to play, I said "Sure."
Here's how it went down ...
Megan: In what country did the first advent calendar o-gredient?
Me trying to clarify the mispronounced word: Originate?
Megan: Nope! Germany.
Megan: What is a tay-bomb?
Me having not learned from my experience with question #1: Tannenbaum?
Megan: No. It's a German Christmas tree.
Megan: Which of the following did the 3 wise men not bring to Baby Jesus: Gold, frankleness, or dynamos?
Me pretty sure that neither dynamos or frankleness were among the first Christmas gifts: Um, frankleness?
Megan: Dynamos (which I later saw was spelled: diamonds)
Megan: Which of the following is not one of Santa's reindeer: Vixen, Common, or Donner?
Megan: Nope. Donner.
Me: But Donner IS one of Santa's reindeer. Wait, how is it spelled?
Me: Uh huh. And how is Common spelled?
Yeah ... never play a trivia game with a 3rd grade reader who is missing both front teeth. Odds are not in your favor.
