11-20 You’re Kevin McCallister! 

You enjoy Christmas but like Kevin you often feel confused by the meaning of Christmas. The commercial side and the history of Christmas probaly doesn’t interest you as much as the food.

0-10 You’re the Grinch! 

Time for you to retreat back up to Mount Crumpit. You clearly aren’t a fan of Christmas and you probably hide away for the most of it waiting for your annual gift of socks.
