For your merriment, Creative Loafing presents its "Five Days of Christmas" giveaway. Each day this week, we have posted five-question quizzes, and now we have made it to the last day! The questions earlier this week have been relatively easy, but today's quiz is the most difficult because today's grand prize is the best: an HP Mini, courtesy of Coretek. The first person to submit the correct answers by email to firstname.lastname@example.org will win this special gift. Answers to the questions can be found in our website archives, via stories published within the past six months.
