Question 3 of 10
3. Prancer is high on Inspector Snow's list of suspects. He has been complaining of feeling ill all day and is only now ready to be interviewed.

5. Inspector Snow's investigation is not going well and while speaking to Cupid, his mood is not improved. All he learns there is that Cupid is named after a Roman god and has a Greek counterpart. What is this Greek god's name? Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. Comet too has taken inspiration from his own name and is studying a book of constellations when Inspector Snow approaches. Comet assures Inspector Snow that it was not his hoof which went astray. The mention of hooves reminds him to ask Inspector Snow if he knows that Sagittarius is usually depicted as a Centaur. The Inspector assures Comet that he is aware of this. 'Ah,' says Comet 'then can you tell me what it is the Centaur usually holds?' Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. Donner is watching a sporting documentary when Inspector Snow approaches. Although distracted, he assures the Inspector that he was not the reindeer responsible for Grandma's injuries. The Inspector is frustrated, and is just about to leave when Donner stops him with a question "Can you tell me Inspector, what is shown to players to indicate their expulsion from a game in rugby union, football and field hockey?" Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. Blitzen is next up for questioning. Inspector Snow is faced with a proclamation of innocence yet again.

Question 9 of 10
9. Rudolph is last on Inspector Snow's list of suspects, and he is found dancing to The Beatles. "It wasn't me Inspector, and as I lead the way, the accident happened behind me, so I can't be sure who caused Grandma's calamity". A little dejected now, Inspector Snow is delighted when Rudolph hands him a gift. Unwrapping it he finds a CD titled "Venus and Mars", by which band? Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. Inspector Snow is upset. All day interviewing and all he hears about are red cards, flowers and love songs...at that, a glimmer of an idea appears. Could it be the reindeer weren't quite so unhelpful after all? Based on his conversations with them, which reindeer ran over Grandma?

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Inspector Snow approaches Dasher first. Dasher says "It wasn't me Inspector Snow. I can't help you, but maybe you could help me? I'm looking for a particular song but can't remember the full title. I know it's by Feargal Sharkey. Can you fill in the missing word? A good ___ ?"

Answer: Heart

Feargal Sharkey is a singer from Northern Ireland. He was the original front man for 'The Undertones'. BBC Radio1 DJ John Peel was a huge fan of 'The Undertones' and declared that their single 'Teenage Kicks' was his favourite song. The song 'A Good Heart' was written by American singer Maria McKee, and went to number one in the UK charts.
2. Inspector Snow has no more luck with Dancer, who is settling in to watch a movie starring Sean Connery and Christian Slater. He can almost make out the title; just the last word is missing. It is called 'The Name of the ___'?

Answer: Rose

'The Name of the Rose' is based on the novel of the same name by Umberto Eco. Sean Connery plays a Franciscan monk and Christian Slater plays his apprentice.
Connery's character, William of Baskerville, is called to investigate a mysterious death at a monastery. While there a number of other deaths occur, and William investigates with the aid of his apprentice, however the arrival of an Inquisition priest creates a conflict between William's empirical approach and the more conventional beliefs of the medieval time period in which the movie is set.
3. Prancer is high on Inspector Snow's list of suspects. He has been complaining of feeling ill all day and is only now ready to be interviewed. Inspector Snow is feeling confident he has found the culprit until Prancer explains the reason for his illness - he has eaten some Viscum album by accident. Inspector Snow nods and smiles and dashes to find a dictionary. What is Viscum album better known as?

Answer: Mistletoe

Mistletoe is a parasitic plant (it gets some or all of it's nutrients from another plant) which attaches itself to the branches of other shrubs and trees.
The tradition of people kissing below it comes from Norse mythology. Baldr was a god of vegetation, killed by a spear of mistletoe. The other gods revived him and his mother declared that mistletoe was sacred and from that point forward would bring love into the world. The kiss beneath the mistletoe is a celebration of Baldr's resurrection.
4. Inspector Snow finds Vixen busy reading a biography of a famous Italian designer. Vixen declares her innocence, and proceeds to tell the Inspector that the designer she is reading about once designed Jacqueline Kennedy's wedding dress for her wedding to Aristotle Onassis. Who is Vixen reading about?

Answer: Valentino

Valentino Garavani, better known simply by his first name, was born in Northern Italy in 1932. He moved to Paris to pursue a career in fashion, returning to Italy after ten years to open his first fashion house in Rome. His major break in fashion came in the early sixties in Florence, the then fashion capital of Italy. Throughout the sixties he went on to win awards including the Nieman Marcus Fashion award, and he 'dressed' some of the most famous women in the world including Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Margaret.
5. Inspector Snow's investigation is not going well and while speaking to Cupid, his mood is not improved. All he learns there is that Cupid is named after a Roman god and has a Greek counterpart. What is this Greek god's name?

Answer: Eros

Eros, the son of Aphrodite, was the god of love and beauty. There is a near earth asteroid named after Eros, which has been orbited and landed on by the space probe 'NEAR Shoemaker'. Eros forms part of the 'Amors', which are a group of the closest near earth asteroids - and 'Amor' is another name for Cupid in Roman mythology.
6. Comet too has taken inspiration from his own name and is studying a book of constellations when Inspector Snow approaches. Comet assures Inspector Snow that it was not his hoof which went astray. The mention of hooves reminds him to ask Inspector Snow if he knows that Sagittarius is usually depicted as a Centaur. The Inspector assures Comet that he is aware of this. 'Ah,' says Comet 'then can you tell me what it is the Centaur usually holds?'

Answer: Bow

Sagittarius is one of the constellations associated with astrology. As the Milky Way passes through Sagittarius, it is at its most dense, resulting in lots of nebulae and clusters of stars. Astronomers believe that within the Sagittarius constellation, there is a supermassive black hole, the location of which is believed to be Sagittarius A* (A-star).

It is believed that most galaxies contain such supermassive black holes at their centres.
7. Donner is watching a sporting documentary when Inspector Snow approaches. Although distracted, he assures the Inspector that he was not the reindeer responsible for Grandma's injuries. The Inspector is frustrated, and is just about to leave when Donner stops him with a question "Can you tell me Inspector, what is shown to players to indicate their expulsion from a game in rugby union, football and field hockey?"

Answer: Red card

Penalty cards are used in a wide variety of sports to indicate any number of 'offenses' by players. Many of them are colour coded to give the degree or severity of the punishment.

In football, a yellow card is a warning, with two yellow cards resulting in a player being sent off. In field hockey and rugby union, it indicates that a player is suspended for a period of time.

A green card can be used in field hockey for a minor break of the rules, but two in a row may result in a yellow card being shown and a suspension.

A black card is used in fencing for a severe offense by a participant and is the equivalent of a red card in the other sports mentioned here - the fencer is excluded from the competition.
8. Blitzen is next up for questioning. Inspector Snow is faced with a proclamation of innocence yet again. Blitzen is reading a history of London and has discovered an interesting fact about another of his favourite subjects. In 1657, a shop opened, the first of its kind in England, selling what?

Answer: Chocolate

Chocolate was introduced to Europe by the Spanish, following their conquest of the Aztecs. It was first introduced as a drink, and the shop in London sold chocolate in this form.

Unlike France, where it had been decreed that only the nobility might drink it, the chocolate shop allowed anyone who could afford it to purchase - however it was very expensive, which resulted in it being a drink mainly for the nobility there too.
9. Rudolph is last on Inspector Snow's list of suspects, and he is found dancing to The Beatles. "It wasn't me Inspector, and as I lead the way, the accident happened behind me, so I can't be sure who caused Grandma's calamity". A little dejected now, Inspector Snow is delighted when Rudolph hands him a gift. Unwrapping it he finds a CD titled "Venus and Mars", by which band?

Answer: Wings

'Wings' was formed by Paul McCartney in 1971. It was very successful with every one of its nine albums reaching the top ten in either the USA or the UK. 'Venus and Mars' was the fourth studio album from 'Wings' and featured the single 'Listen to What the Man Said' as its lead off single, which went to number one in both the UK and America.
10. Inspector Snow is upset. All day interviewing and all he hears about are red cards, flowers and love songs...at that, a glimmer of an idea appears. Could it be the reindeer weren't quite so unhelpful after all? Based on his conversations with them, which reindeer ran over Grandma?

Answer: Cupid

Yes, Cupid did it. His hoof hit a patch of ice, slipped sideways and accidentally clipped Grandma. You'll be pleased to hear she is recovering well and Cupid has sent a note of apology and some beautiful flowers to cheer her up.
None of the reindeer felt comfortable pointing Cupid out to Inspector Snow, but being innately helpful creatures, all of them gave him hints as to who was the guilty party - including Cupid himself!
Roses, mistletoe, hearts, cards, chocolate - even a bow and arrow all pointed to Cupid.
