What is your Christmas Style?

Here’s the scenario: Christmas is in a week and suddenly, mum and dad, who were taking care of the Christmas festivities, decided they would prefer to spend your inheritance and go on a cruise to the islands. Firstly, you think, how rude…that’s my inheritance. Secondly, what am I going to do for Christmas now?

The Results

If you scored between 16 and 20:
You may as well be Santa Claus himself!! But you already knew that. So your last minute Christmas will be a snap to plan and your execution will be flawless. The only thing you need to be weary of is making sure YOU get to relax on Christmas day. Your Christmas presents were planned months ago so there is no problem in that department but if you need a little help with the menu maybe treat yourself to a BBQ and Beer cooking classs so that it can be just as perfect as the rest of your Christmas soiree.

If you scored between 11 and 15:
You are obviously keen for Christmas but you’ve never been expected to PLAN a Christmas. Fear not! Figure out what gifts you want to get for your guest, your favourite cuisine, and find a treat to add a little something extra then the rest should just fall into place.

If you scored between 6 and 10:
Ummm, how do I put this…you might be in Struggletown! Perhaps you need help with your Christmas party. But at least treat yourself for the effort you put in and remember, you planned this at the last minute. You rock like a jingle bell!

If you scored between 5 and 9:
To you, Christmas is Chocolate eggs and hot cross buns! That’s ok…your friends know this and chances are they’ll be expecting you to crack out the bunny ears. Just forget about the Christmas thing and find things to do that are just as much fun as you.
