HOW DID YOU RATE?
10-15 score: It’s pretty clear you’re a festive movie buff. You can’t wait to re-watch your Christmas favourites when December hits, and you recite many of the character’s quotes. Even when you know what to expect, you still shed a tear at the sad parts or laugh out loud when a classic comic line hits.
5-9 score: It's not a Christmas Day disaster but you need to plan some time to revisit some holiday classics for the most magical time of the year.
0-4 score: Whoever said the spirit of Christmas doesn’t exist? Well, you seem to think so. Either Christmas movies are not your thing or you have better things to be doing while these movies are on.
