Our Holly Jolly for the Brilliant Big Kids


The "Ho! Ho! Ho!" Game


Brownielocks and The Three bears
Something to keep the kids busy and their mind off presents on Christmas Day, to change the subject of conversation among the relatives or to just add to your Christmas fun!

This page loads a bit slower than the other trivia page because we designed it with answer buttons on each question.



You can print out the questions and write down your answers. Then come back and check the "ANSWERS" given in the "Ho" buttons at the end to see how many you got correct.
 Or, if you wish to, just play along at the computer.

At the end of every question, just put your mouse over the "Ho Ho" box   and the answer will appear.

If using a smart phone to view these pages, just put your finger on the symbol and hold it for a moment. A pop up that contains the answer will appear. To close the pop up, just tap elsewhere on the screen.

For every answer you get right,
 give yourself a "HO".

 At the end of the game, see how many "Ho Ho Ho's" you & the others have. 
Of course the more Ho's the merrier! 
Then EVERYONE has to say all their "Ho's" outloud!!
  Or just sit at the computer and "Ho, Ho, Ho" to yourself
 because you're so smart. :)

Here are the lyrics to our midi "Holly Jolly Christmas"

Have a holly jolly Christmas,
It's the best time of the year.
I don't know if there'll be snow,
But have a cup of cheer.

Have a holly jolly Christmas,
And when you walk down the street,
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet.

Oh, ho, the mistletoe
Hung where you can see.
Somebody waits for you.
Kiss her once for me.

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn't hear,
Oh, by golly have a holly, jolly 
Christmas this year!


Most people think that Burl Ives wrote this song because his version is the most popular.
Actually, "A Holly Jolly Christmas" was written my Johnny Marks, born in Mt. Vernon, NY 1909.
He is not known as a composer, but more as a radio producer.  He produced shows overseas
during World War II.  He died in New York City in 1985.

I briefly met Burl Ives when I lived in Santa Barbara, CA.  Although he has also passed away, 
his holly jolly voice through this song will forever bring Christmas cheer to millions.

I tried to choose questions for ALL AGES and in a variety of categories so that everyone has a chance to get some Ho's for the holidays! :)
These are just some of the questions
taken from "Tis The Season Christmas Trivia" by Debco, Inc.

However, I've reworded many questions just in case you already have the game. ;)
