The holiday season is a time of generosity, joy, and celebration…to say nothing of stress, spending money you don’t have, and hanging around people that you’d just as soon avoid. It’s a time of contrasts, in other words.

This ambivalent spirit is embodied by a slew of Christmas curmudgeons, some of whom are among the most celebrated characters in literary and television history. Which holiday sourpuss are you most like? Answer a few questions and we’ll tell you. If nothing else, this quiz should serve as a nice respite from all that incessant holiday cheer.
