Did you like the 2nd annual spanky white elephant gift exchange? You’ll love today’s Christmas carol sing-a-long! Just as nutty, but with twice the chaos and fun!
Here are the rules:
- Post a song title, a lyric, or a translation of a Christmas carol. (You can use holiday songs other than Christmas, too!)
- Look at the previous song titles, lyrics or translations. Guess the title, add to the lyrics, or guess the language (by replying to the comment).
- Get confused.
- Ask other people for help who are just as confused as you are.
- Have fun!
Nantes per nives
in aperta traha
trans agros imus
laetissimi nos canimus
canticum hac nocte.
O tantum est gaudium
Dum vehimur in traha! Ha!
(The next person should guess the language or the English title of the song.)
Come, they told me pa-rum-bum-bum-bum.
(The next person should guess the title of the song or give the next line.)
(The next person should give the first line or a translation in a different language.)
If you have a blog, feel free to add to the fun! Put up:
- a link or embedded video clip
- translations in languages whose alphabets are not supported by the wordpress comment box
- additional information about your favorite song
- anything related to Christmas carols!Be sure to give us the link so we can go and check it out.
Challenge: How many languages can we represent in today’s sing-a-long?
If we get to 50 languages today (real languages, Michael!), I will submit to one penalty decided by a group vote. Maybe even admit I am the elf in the corner…maybe.
