N. Question Correct answer Wrong answer 1 Wrong answer 2
Out Cold
1 In S1E1, "Simpsons Roasting On an Open Fire", where do Homer and Bart first encounter Santa's Little Helper? At Springfield Downs At the animal shelter At the train station
2 In S15E7, "Tis the Fifteenth Season", what does Homer impulse buy at the mall instead of saving money for the family Christmas tree? A Personalized Talking Astrolabe A 7200 Ounce Squishee A BoomBroCue Grill

5 In S30E10, "Tis the 30th Season", what does Marge stand in line all night to buy for Black Friday? A GL50 9K Smart TV An Inferno Buster 3000 fire truck A BB King BB gun
5b Okay, sure. But in the end she doesn't actually get a GL50 9K Smart TV. Why not? Because she sacrifices it to help Gil get a Futon Friend for his granddaughter Because her feet froze in the cold and she falls and gets trampled Because it was a bait and switch and the store didn't have them anyway
5c Right, right. Gil's the worst. We're all agreed. But what does Homer do to make her feel better about not getting the TV for the kids for Christmas? He books them a Christmas trip to Florida He steals a GL50 9K Smart TV off a loading truck Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
End You are so smart! SMRT!

2b Pfft, that one was soooo easy. But why did Burns want to steal everyone's Christmas presents? Because he didn't get any love from his parents Because Burns bought Costington's and wanted people to have to rebuy their presents Does Burns really need a reason to be evil? (hint: no he doesn't, but this is not the answer
3 In S12E8, "Skinner's Sense of Snow", when the children are stuck in the school due to a snowstorm, how does Skinner deal with an unruly Nelson? He hangs Nelson from a coat hook He duct tapes Nelson to a desk He gives Nelson an atomic wedgie to assert his dominance

2 What is Homer's favorite Christmas-time beverage? Eggnog! Sorry, Homer broke the answers on that question by spilling eggnog
on them. We'll give you a gift card anyways.
3 In S26E9, "I Won't Be Home for Christmas", why does Homer end up staying late at Moe's on Christmas Eve? Because Moe had set the clock in the bar to two hours behind Because the bar gets snowed in and they can't get out Because he's hiding from The Grumple who won't stop stalking him
4 In S9E10, "Miracle on Evergreen Terrace", without an alarm clock, how does Bart ensure that he wakes up in time to open Christmas presents in the morning? He drinks 12 glasses of water He has Milhouse call to wake him up He eats a bunch of sugar to stay up all night
5 If Lisa leaves at 2pm on a train going 50mph to Shelbyville, and Bart leaves at 3pm on his bike going 80mph towards North Haverbrook, who will arrive first? Homer: Math makes me sleepy... Martin: You have failed to give adequate data to solve the problem. Comic Book Guy: Worst. Trivia question. Ever.
End Actually, all the answers were correct. Have a gift card.
Sleighing It
1 In S31E22, "The Way of the Dog", what does Marge try to get Santa's Little Helper to wear for a Christmas photo? A Santa hat An ugly Christmas sweater A Christmas wreath around his neck
2 In S12E8, "Skinner's Sense of Snow", when Homer and Flanders are stuck in the car getting carbon monoxide poisoning, what does Homer hallucinate? Getting blasted in the face with a ranch dressing hose by belly dancers A group of scantily clad Marges feeding him donuts off the vine An incredible future where every night is pork chop night
2b Okay smarty pants, well riddle me this... who saves Homer and Flanders from the car just before they die of carbon monoxide poisoning? Nibbles the school hamster Barney dressed as a big baby Sir Oinks-a-lot
3 Previously we asked you where Homer and Bart first encountered Santa's Little Helper in the first episode. Did you answer that question correctly on the first try? Yes No! Are you kidding? I don't even remember what I had for breakfast this morning!
4 In S25E8, "White Christmas Blues", why is Homer so excited when it finally begins snowing during Christmas season? Because he no longer has to pick up the dog poop Because he can finally wear clothes that hide the fat rolls Because he's been yearning to wallop Bart with snowballs
