A Charlie Brown Christmas Quiz

. at . 2 comments

I’ve been watching A Charlie Brown Christmas for 45 years now. It debuted on Thursday, Dec. 9, 1965In my younger years, this is the special on TV that signaled “Christmas was near.” I watched it again last night and enjoyed it as much as I have every other year.

I noticed that even when this movie was first shown, commercialism was something that tended to spoil Christmas. However, this simple movie recounts what Christmas is all about. It is a reminder of Who is behind the hoopla. I love that it includes the Biblical account of Christ’s birth and worship. Ending with a hymn-style Christmas song that proclaims Christ as King makes my heart respond in gratitude and worship. As an adult watching this movie, it signals that “Christ is near.”

Below is a little quiz to see how observant you’ve been while watching this movie.

1. What winter activity are the children involved in at the beginning of the movie?

  • Making a snowman
  • Having a snowball fight
  • Ice skating
  • Sledding

2. Charley Brown talks to Lucy (for $0.05) to get help with his depression about Christmas. Lucy’s answer is . . .

  • Uncharacteristically kind in that she offers him the job of director for their Christmas play.
  • “Come play football, Charley Brown. The exercise will do you good.” While playing the game, Lucy moves the ball away as he is about to kick it so that he falls to the ground.
  • “What a block head you are, Charley brown. Christmas is the best season ever!”
  • “Listen to Schroeder play the piano. Isn’t he dreamy?”

3. What is the name of one musical piece Schroeder plays on the piano?

4. Lucy admits that she is also depressed by Christmas because she never gets what she wants. What does Lucy most want as a Christmas gift?

  • Doll
  • Clothes
  • Games
  • Real estate

5. Linus tells Charley Brown what the meaning of Christmas is and quotes from which Biblical passage?

6. Who finally says, “I won’t let all this commercialism ruin my Christmas?”

  • Lucy
  • Schroeder
  • Charley Brown
  • Linus

7. What song do all the children sing at the conclusion of the movie?
