A Pair That Goes Together Like Hot Cocoa and Marshmallows

          Holiday Quiz Answer:

          Answer #3 is not true. It’s a Wonderful Life was NOT a box-office hit. In fact, the movie was a flop and lost money at the box office. It did not become popular until the late 1970s, when it began appearing frequently on television.
