Annuity Alliance Wishes You a Safe and Happy Holiday Season!

The Annuity Alliance team would like to wish you a very safe and relaxing holiday season, and we hope you will enjoy celebrating with family, friends, and loved ones to end 2022 on a positive note. This year, we’ve faced a lot of challenges with the rise of inflation, a fluctuating economy, and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic still lingering within our world.

The holidays are a time to remember those we’ve lost, share gifts and memories with each other, take a time to reflect on how “we made it” through 2022, and how 2023 provides a fresh, new start filled with resolutions, hope, and opportunity.

This year, Annuity Alliance decided to add some fun to our annual holiday message by sharing some holiday trivia. Hope you enjoy these trivia questions – and scroll down to the bottom to see the answers!
