This edition of Philly Quizzo marked Billy Penn’s third year running a holiday trivia quiz.

Winter season traditions are a popular topic, judging by attendance at our Zoom event on Dec. 2, where more than 100 people joined us to play the game live.

People split into 39 different teams to vie for bragging rights and the prize, a $50 gift card to West Philly cafe and boutique Mina’s World.

At the end of three rounds of questions about Philly Holidays Past, Philly Holidays Present and Philly Holidays Future, the leaderboard was very close: four teams were tied at the top. (First time that’s happened, btw.)

We broke the standoff between “IChooseYouPikachu,” “Team Nasty,” “Team Specialty” and “What in Tarnation” with a bonus question: On what South Philly street is the “Miracle” holiday light display? “What in Tarnation” had lighting fingers, and was first to provide the correct answer: 13th Street.

Now it’s your turn. Without using Google, can you beat their high score of 20/24?

To play, pick your the answers in the “Past,” “Present” and “Future” sections below, then click “Submit” and scroll up to hit “View Score” and see how you did. (That’s where you’ll see the correct answers, too.)

If the form below doesn’t work for you, take the quiz here.
