edited December 2020 in Coffee lounge

Welcome to the show

It's time for some festive All-Star Family Fortunes on the community.
For those who don't know, Family Fortunes is a quiz show where families battle it out by taking it in turns to answer survey based questions. These questions could be things like "name something you have on toast" for example, and the task for the teams is to guess any of the top six answers. 

The community version

Now, we have put together a real treat for you today. We have 12 Christmas themed questions, all of which have 6 top answers associated with them.
We will post the first 3 questions now, and sporadically add them in chunks of three as the quiz progresses, so keep an eye on this thread!
We will post the answers to each set of 3 questions as we post the next set of 3, and so on.
Remember, we are looking for the 6 top answers associated with each question.

On with the show!

Here are questions 1 to 3, you should put what you think is the top answer at #1 and so on. Or if you aren't fussed about order and just want to guess what answers are there, feel free:
