your birthday today?

Search results take a few seconds and open in a  new window. May need to allow Pop Ups to see results.

Please do not steal this for  your site either all of it or some questions out of it.
It took time to research all of this.

Finally...
I removed the falling question marks because on "SOME" systems they  interfered with seeing the embedded answers.

(A max of 50 smoochies or hugs is possible)

This can also be a "Love, Romance & Relationship" Trivia Game
(besides the Kisses & Hugs)  since there isn't too much information on Valentines Day. I decided to create this for either a fun, on-line interactive learning experience; or, to help give our visitors a little Valentine present as well as some information to start a conversation up with the opposite sex sometime.

After each question, there is the answer arrow that looks like this: All you do is place your mouse over the "answer" and it will appear and see if you were right.
It is not a link button! 
 Just place your mouse over it.
(Answer should appear in a few seconds)

If you want to play this as the "Smoochies & Hugs" game too, here are the alternate rules:

 When you get done with the quiz, I'll tell you what to do next.

All answers are embedded text over the Answer button gif. 

NOTE: IF YOU ARE BLOCKING POP-UP ADS, etc.
THIS WILL BLOCK MY ANSWERS FROM SHOWING ALSO!
