Now the Calendar's Just One Page

by Cate Masters

The video above’s one of my favorite Christmas duets. If you're like me, you like Christmas songs from any era. So I was surprised to come across the Christmas song trivia contest below in our local shopper newspaper last year - I have to admit, it stumped me. Let's see if you can fare any better.

Because it’s the season of giving, I’m giving away a PDF of any of my releases to the first person who correctly matches the song title to the artist (or has the most correct matches), and emails the answers to me at cate.masters AT (please put Christmas Song Quiz in the subject line). Once I have a winner, I’ll post the quiz answers on my blog.

  1. Yes, that's why I did so poorly. :) But it's mix or match, so if you email me any answers, you could still match a few!

  2. How fun! Great idea! I also love that performance between Bowie and Crosby. I love those old Christmas TV specials - there really is no one who can carry that torch today.

  3. I love that Bowie outsings Bing! But no one can sing White Christmas like him. They make a great duo.

  4. Wow, I have a winner already! I'm impressed. I'll post the name and the quiz answers tomorrow on my blog at
    Thanks, and happy holidays, everyone!
