In December, as the days grow shorter and the nights longer, Canadians take comfort in festivals of light that celebrate cultural traditions and spiritual values. Our quiz presents some of the common symbols associated with three popular winter festivals: Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.
Each question below consists of a series of clues. First, find the term that corresponds to each clue: for example, yearn + bends = pine + bows. Then, string the terms together to get the whole expression: in this case, pine boughs. But be careful: as with “bows” and “boughs,” you may have to rely on sound—and ignore spelling—to find the answer!
