How Well Do You Know Your Christmas Carols?
December 21, 2011
I LOVE Christmas music. Over the years, I’ve become pretty familiar with most Christmas songs, both secular and religious. While I make myself wait until after Thanksgiving to start listening to it, I’m always sad when December 26th rolls around and I know I won’t be hearing holiday music on the radio again until the next year.
Below are ten lofty clues to the names of popular Christmas songs, compliments of Reader’s Digest. Can you name them?
- Listen to the celestial messengers produce harmonious sounds.
- Embellish the interior passageways.
- Twelve o’clock on a clement night witnessed its arrival.
- The Christmas preceding all others.
- Small municipality in Judea south of Jerusalem.
- Omnipotent supreme being who elicits respite in distinguished males.
- Nocturnal time span of unbroken quietness.
- Obese personification fabricated of compressed mounds of minute crystals.
- Tintinnabulation of vacillating pendulums in inverted, metallic, resonant cups.
- In awe of the eventide characterized by religiosity.
