Merry Christmas, my special little snowflakes! I believe this is the first time Tuesday Trivia has ever arrived on Christmas Day. Maybe print this out and put it under the tree as a special surprise? Think of all the cheer and good will toward men that might result.

I've made my list and checked it twice: it's the official scoreboard at http://ken-jennings.com/messageboard...php?f=3&t=9373 . Have the happiest of holidays, everybody. See you next year! (Remember to tell people "See you next year!" a lot this week, because that's always hilarious.)

2. The historical Saint Nicholas was the Bishop of Myra, a city located in what is today the Antalya Province of what nation?

3. The hybrid holiday Chrismukkah was popularized on a December 3, 2003 episode of what TV drama?

4. What Christmas character is accused of being "an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of an underdone potato"?
