Quiz time: Share your holiday habits and discover your creative type

As the Christmas holidays come to an end, we start to feel nostalgic about the time we had to relax. So, let’s take a moment to reflect, casting our minds back to those days—a brief respite before we get caught up in the busy fashion month. It may feel like it’s been a long time, but in reality, it’s been only a few days. During the holidays, we were probably spending time on our sofas, watching great films or doing other things we enjoy. Some of us may have been meticulously crafting budgetary plans for the sales season or embracing our inner geeks, exploring the myriad AI tools available. Regardless of what we did, the holiday season undeniably gave us the freedom to be creative.

Amidst festive periods, we tend to express joy, follow leisure traditions, and engage in creative pursuits that we may not have the time for during the rest of the year. But let us skip the talk and dive into this quiz test to uncover what your holiday habits reveal about your creative soul.
