O'Reilly's Great American Holiday Quiz

Despite his annual tirades against the so-called War on Christmas and people who say Happy Holidays, Fox News host Bill OReilly has a Great American Holiday Quiz up on the Parade Magazine website:

1. O'Reilly being a hypocrite?
A draft dodger who never served America, but who promotes war?

A war-against-Christmas delusional freak who is making money promoting 'holidays'?

Why am I unsurprised.

2. That's odd.
Despite his anti-semitic "War on Christmas" the people who wrote his quiz included a number of questions on Hanukkah.

8. Standard pointless X-mas trivia.
Who came up with the character Rudolph the Red-nosed reindeer?

What's the biggest selling Chrismas music single in history?

Which state first made X-mas an official holiday?

Hanukkah means what in Hebrew?

And so on.

3. Well that was fun.
Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 02:54 PM by GoneOffShore
And of course pretty biased but commercial. I only got 28 right.

And although Kwanza and Hanukkah, Christmas gets all the attention.

No mention of the pagan origins of the holidays- but no mention of the pagan origins of Judaism or Christianity either.

I say

Bring back Zeus!!! And if we can't find him, Odin.

4. Hey Billo!
Although the holiday is a minor one in the Jewish religious calendar, it is one of the most widely-celebrated Jewish holidays among American Jews.


Guess what? Nowhere in the scriptures does it mention anything regarding a celebration or anything to do with the day of Jesus' birth.

Christians stole the holiday from pagans.

5. At first I failed, but then I rammed a vibrator up my ass and aced it!
Who knew?

6. 31 correct. A chance to win poorly thought out scribblings from O'Reily? No thanks. n/t

10. It's unlikely that Billo created the quiz
Remember this is the guy who calls upon his minions to boycott stores whose employees say "happy holidays."

I think he hates Kwanzaa even more than he hates solstice celebrations.

11. Correct, Its a Parade magazine quiz. Taking the quiz gets you a chance to win O'Liely's book. n/t

12. But that makes no sense
What possible use would someone so intimately familiar with multiple cultures and beliefs want with Billo's book? That would be like giving a Nobel prize winner a copy of Ben Stein's Expelled.

I'm surprise that Papa Bear allowed his name to be associated with such heresy.
