Why I Hate Christmas
"It comes round every year and there are so many things about it which I dislike. Here's a quiz about some of them. Feel free to shout 'Bah, humbug!' at me. LeoDaVinci came up with the title, so my thanks go to him for the suggestion."

The traditional Christmas dinner in the UK always has sprouts as part of the meal. I hate sprouts. The full name for this vegetable includes the name of the capital city of which country?
Even though everyone knows I do not have green fingers, I usually receive a particular plant for Christmas. It originated in Mexico and its traditional colours are red and green. Which plant do I hate to find under my Christmas tree?
Another irritation is the carol singers who seem to know only 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas'. Occasionally, I'm lucky enough to hear the words 'Come and behold Him, born the King of angels', which come from which carol?
Hark! the Herald Angels Sing
It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
O Come, All Ye Faithful
Another thing I hate about Christmas is having to leave out a mince pie for Santa on Christmas Eve. The name of Santa Claus is derived from St. Nicholas who was Bishop of Myra, a town in what is now called the Antalya Province. In which modern day country is this region?
As if feeding Santa isn't bad enough, his reindeer expect a carrot left for them as well. Which of these is *NOT* one of the eight reindeer in the poem 'A Visit From St. Nicholas'?
Yet another reason to hate Christmas is hearing the same old songs every year. You can't escape them in the shops or on the radio, and they seem to start playing them at the beginning of November. Among them is sure to be Aled Jones singing 'Walking in the Air', a song which was featured in which animated film?
The Polar Express
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Babes in Toyland
I hate the fact that complete strangers will try to kiss me at Christmas, using mistletoe as an excuse. To which genus does mistletoe belong?
The Yule log was originally a large piece of wood burned in the fireplace, but now is more likely to refer to a cake made to look like a log. It is usually finished off with which sickly sweet covering?
Another Christmas tradition in the UK consists of a rolled up tube with a joke, paper hat, explosive snap and (usually useless) gift inside to be pulled apart over lunch. What name is given to these in the UK?
Christmas is also the pantomime season and I hate pantomimes. Among the best known is 'Cinderella', who goes to the ball thanks to her Fairy Godmother. Cinderella's shoes, one of which she loses, are made from which unlikely material?
