  1. I am so bad about the history of Christmas! Pretty much the only answer I got right was the most popular food chain in Japan, haha... Mostly because I recently read an article about how KFC became a Christmas tradition there. I need to go review my history! Thanks for sharing :). Merry Christmas!

  3. Haha, what a great quiz! I ended up getting 7/10 but I think I guessed about 7 of them out of the 10 ­čśé it's interesting to find out that KFC is the most popular fast food chain around Christmas time for Japan - I wouldn't have thought of that! I hope you have a lovely Christmas :)

  13. I got 6 which is a lot better than I thought I was going to do. A couple were good guesses...I didn't have a clue about the fast food one, that's so interesting. I wonder why?! x
