They aren't for cooking, they are bitter and can cause digestive upsets. They were brought to the US from Mexico by an ambassador named Poinsett, and their red color led to them being marketed as a Christmas plant in the US. I bought mine this week - they only last a few weeks before the red bracts fall off.

So if poinsettia is Mexican it probably won't be used for the Whitehouse Christmas dinner...

the holly picture isn't great since it focuses on the berry if it was zoomed further out it would probably have more people answering it correctly

Not American or European, but have heard of Holly and Mistletoe through songs (kissing under the mistletoe, deck the halls with holly etc.) Where does Poinsettia appear in Christmas stuff?

The poinsettia is closely associated with Christmas here in the US. The traditional Christmas colors are red and green, so offices, stores, etc. will decorate with red and green poinsettias in December.

I think they'd need to have cups for it to be wassailing. Plus, they look entirely too sober.

we have a similar thing in the Czech Republic but we just call him "a devil". He accompanies St. Nicholas on the 5th of December along with an angel. I have never heard the name Krampus though :/

On December 5th, Sinterklaas is accompanied by "Zwarte Piet" (Black Pete). Never heard of "Krampus."

Yeah, never heard of it in the UK. I did know they had something along those lines on the continent, but I had no idea on the name. Amazed it scored as highly as it did, i was expecting low single figures.

It's saint Nicholas (my saint), who was basically what santa claus was called centuries ago.

Yeah, St. Nicholas was one of the primary inspirations for the modern character of Santa Claus. In fact, it's where the name "Santa Claus" came from: Saint -> Santa, Nicholas -> Niklaus -> Klaus -> Claus. Santa is still often referred to as St. Nicholas or St. Nick, like in the carol "Up On the House Top" or in "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" (which is actually properly titled "A Visit from St. Nicholas.")

I wonder what 'Krampus' has to do with Christmas?

In English-speaking countries, naughty children are merely given coal in lieu of presents. However, in some parts of Europe, misbehaving children receive Yuletide visits from a demonic beast named Krampus. This explains why you never see any litter on the streets of Vienna.

We were never threatened with coal when I was young. People burned that in their stoves and wouldn't have given it away. The naughty children in my area were threatened with switches in their stockings.

Would you consider an alternate (albeit incorrect) spelling of "poinsettia"? Per Wikipedia, there are two acceptable pronunciations of the word, one of which does not pronounce the second "i", which is how I have always heard it pronounced, thus assuming that it is spelled "poinsetta".

We'll keep our decorative poinsettias here in the UK and leave the left of you the Krampus (which I'd never heard of) :)

And since the Quizmaster is American, that only makes sense. If you want to make a "UK Christmas by Picture," "Australian Christmas by Picture," "Azerbaijani Christmas by Picture," or wherever you're from Christmas by picture, you can totally do that, even on this site, and no one will stop you. In fact, Quizmaster may even feature it!

Actually it's US/UK Christmas by picture (apart from Krampus) - though in the UK we'd also need Christmas Pudding (preferably alight), mince pies, brandy butter and a whole load of other lovely things!

"Eggnog" is reminiscent of a bottled liquor called "Ponche Crema" which is widely available in the Southern Caribbean and Venezuela year-round, not just at Christmas time.
