O'Tannenbaum Trivia

Recommended Posts

Welcome to our Holiday Trivia game. The trivia will be a Christmas Trees, Christmas movies and Christmas songs... (see a theme here?). there will be no rhyme or reason of which question I'll throw out there each night, so you never know which will show up each night.

 

Do not answer here. You will have 23 hours to pm me your answer. Please do not answer on the HOL Forum or the Entrance Hall, because I really don't check there for replies to trivia. It was just, as Prof. McGonagall once said, "just dumb luck" that I caught some last year.

 

For your correct answer you will earn 3 Diamonds.

 

 

On to the first question:

 

The song, O'Tannenbaum is about a specific type of tree. Which type of tree is it about?

Yes, I know, I didn't put up last night's trivia. I got swamped by at least 18 emails from former students asking if I would participate on a project they are doing for their Health class in the middle school. So I spent my evening writing 18 letters for each of them knowing they needed to get their information quickly.

 

I will double up tonight with the Trivia questions.

I just wanted to let everyone know I will be out of town for the next few days.

 

Going on a birthday trip to NYC to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

 

Trivia will be on hold (unless I can figure out how to do it on my phone... which mean remembering my password)

Thank you for the heads up, Fels.

 

Wow. What a wonderful celebration for your birthday, to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

I'm back... it's been a crazy couple of weeks.  The week before Christmas with 26 students was like herding cats. Then having to finish up my own shopping, wrapping and decorating. And then on top of that helping  my oldest daughter and her husband pack up their house for their move to Florida two days after Christmas.  

 

But now, hopefully, things have calmed down.

 

so...
