Goodbye Scrooge, Hello Christmas Spirit & House Quiz

I'm ashamed in myself.

My post from yesterday ended with something along the lines of "yada yada yada... call me Scrooge".


NOW IS THE TIME TO BE "TOTES" (sorry, can't resist my love for that awful word) EXCITED FOR XMAS.

So... because I don't have a Ghost of Christmas Past to help me find my Xmas joy, I decided to exhibit my ability to be a big girl and tap into it myself. Thus, I spent a good chunk of time tonight putting together a cute Quiz (if I do say so myself).

Christmas Movies are so beloved because (usually) the houses utilized create a level of coziness rarely seen in real life I thought it would be fun to find a handful of homes from some of MY favorite Christmas movies and see if you can guess which house goes with which movie.

Lame-Pun hints can be found below each picture and when you click the "ANSWER" link, you'll be directed to the IMDB movie website-revealing the movie title.

Have fun!


All dressed in red and so no good, horrible and naughty that he could be considered the Devil. ANSWER


This Brood is as strong as a Boulder. ANSWER.


He may not hear wonderfully but he learns how to see how important he is. ANSWER.


I posted on this a bit ago... the protagonist changed her scenery but her amazing fashion sense (& preference for winter-white!) remained the same. ANSWER.


This house not only starred in a movie about small girls but is a historical landmark in real life. ANSWER.


This movie is more tantalizing than electric sex gleaming in the window. ANSWER.


I have been here (hence the picture and the blog post I posted awhile back) and like the main character, I was solo as I spent time there. ANSWER.


What if Santa was one of us? Just a slob like one of us. Just a stranger on the Bus...tryin' to make his way home? ANSWER.


Even Santa should have a Lawyer- some legal jargon goes unnoticed by the untrained eye. ANSWER.


The anti-Bachelor. ANSWER.


The man of the House definitely didn't get a vacation from family drama or mishap. ANSWER.


I happily stayed awake for this entire movie, had I not- I think I would have missed how great it was! ANSWER.


As I said, it's now December 23rd and it's CHRISTMAS-EVE-EVE and I plan on spending the evening tonight with my friends downtown enjoying festive spirits, holiday snacks and Christmasy ambiance in Seasonal, fashionable clothes: essentially, what I'm saying is that I'll be diving headfirst into that Christmas Glow.

PS- I'm interested to hear Quiz feedback! Easy? Hard? Lame? How many did you get right?

By the way...

... because I was so inspired by Rachel McAdams in my Blog post from yesterday, I decided to resurface some old pink highlight clip-ins I had from some college themed party back in the day. I had them in for 5 minutes just to see and shamefully loved them. I have a good feeling I will have to whip them out next time the dress code for the night suggests a hint of gaudy pink hair (So either I'll be lucky and someone will throw a "Rock of Love" party or my friends will be mighty displeased as I decide to make a random happy hour into a pink hair extravaganza!!!)

Merry, Merry Christmas-Eve-Eve!

That was hard Caitlin... I got two correct answers because you gave the clue...Holiday and Home Alone. Hahaha! But surprisingly, I've watched almost all those movies except the really old ones.

Merry Christmas Caitlin! Big hugs from Manila!

Gosh I thought it was kinda hard too!!

I'm ashamed to say I'm not sure what the titles are for most of them:P

Merry merry Christmas to you!!

That quiz was fun- I knew like half because I'm retarded and don't watch tons of movies. That pink is looking good though- almost put some in my hair too the other day but the sad part is it fade reallly fast.

Merry Christmas Adam!

I've been so bad this past week about checking out blogs! I just found your fun quiz! You know I LOVE holiday films, so this was SUPER fun and a couple actually stumped me! I liked clicking over to the answers and reading the goofs and trivia sections! Hope you had a great Christmas! What are you glamorous plans for New Years?
