What Part of New Year’s Are You?

new years fireworks

Happy New Year’s Eve! Are you ready for 2017? I definitely am. I have a few favorite New Year’s traditions, but my favorite has to be writing a New Year’s themed quiz.

This year I decided to go back to basics with a type of quiz I love to write… What Part of (insert thing here) Are You? So of course, it became What Part of New Year’s Are You? I would like to think that this quiz captures the essence of New Year’s! Give it a go, and let me know what you think.

And if you’re looking for even more New Year’s quizzes, check out some favorites like

Have a great new year! And comment below to tell me how you’re celebrating 🙂


What’s Your Christmas Color?

Lots of christmas colors

What color should you plan your Christmas around?

Merry Christmas Eve! I hope you have a great holiday no matter how or when you celebrate 🙂

For me, Christmas Eve is one of the best times of the holidays. There is just so much coziness and anticipation. In fact, whenever I am planning out my holiday decorations and food, I probably have a vision of Christmas Eve in mind. For me, it’s the peak of the holidays, right before all of the wrapping paper and donut crumbs of Christmas morning 🙂

Thinking about what I would like my Christmas Eve to look like inspired my latest quiz: What’s Your Christmas Color? Let me know what color you get, and how true it happens to be for you. What colors dominate your holidays this year?

Happy Winter Solstice!

Happy Winter Solstice (or Summer Solstice if you live down under). Even though I had it on my calendar, this year’s solstice really took me by surprise. Our wintery weather has broken in Austin, and it feels a lot like spring now. I’m sure there is more winter to come though!

Whether it’s very wintery where you are… or not wintery at all. Celebrate winter with me with these quizzes 🙂

Happy Go Caroling Day

What Christmas carol should you be singing today?

I can really feel the holidays in the air lately – mostly because the air is so darn cold! I learned that today is officially Go Caroling Day – which sounds about right to me time wise. Don’t worry – I’ll be sparing the world from my renditions of Christmas carols. But I will celebrate with a quiz!

Are you also a fan of holiday music? Then check out this quiz:

What Christmas Carol Are You?

Let me know what Christmas carol you get, and if it suits you. I’m also looking to write more quizzes about Christmas and holiday music. So if you have any ideas for that, please let me know 🙂

Happy National Maple Syrup Day!

Celebrate National Maple Syrup Day with these quizzes!

Happy Saturday… and happy National Maple Syrup Day. I was delighted when I heard today was a holiday for maple syrup. There is nothing cozier than enjoying some pancakes or waffles topped with maple syrup. Especially if that syrup is the real deal and warmed up.

I don’t have a maple syrup specific quiz yet (though I have some ideas), so I thought we could celebrate maple syrup with a couple breakfast related quizzes. Check them out and let me know what you think!

What Waffle Topping Are You?

Happy National Ugly Sweater Day

Celebrate National Ugly Sweater Day with this quiz!

Did you know that today is National Ugly Sweater Day? I am going to make a wild guess and say that’s due to all the ugly holiday sweaters that appear this time of year! I was at the mall yesterday, and I was very amused by all the ugly Christmas sweaters people were wearing. I think they were being ironic? But still, those sweaters were U-G-L-Y!

If you’re like me and don’t have an ugly holiday sweater, you can still celebrate today with this quiz:

The Ugly Christmas Sweater Test

Let me know what you get on the quiz and whether you own an ugly holiday sweater!

New Quiz: The Christmas Cupcake Test

What Christmas cupcake best suits you?

Happy National Cupcake Day! I looked on my calendar today, and I saw that it was marked as a day for celebrating cupcakes… which I admit seems a little odd considering how many other treats are available during the holidays. That’s okay though – I’m not going to complain. The more treats the better 🙂

I decided to embrace National Cupcake day fully this year while still staying true to the season. So check out my latest quiz:

What character from the movie Elf are you?

Do you like holiday movies? I love them, especially if they are funny. There are certain movies that I watch year after year, and Elf is definitely one of them! Maybe it’s just immaturity on my part, but I very much relate to the character of Buddy the Elf.

Are you also a fan of Elf? If so, you have to take my latest quiz: What Elf Character Are You? Let me know what you get one this one, and what you think of it. (I wrote it right after seeing Elf for the gazillionth time, so it was very fresh in my mind.)
