Holiday Carol Sing-a-long
We will follow (or flout) the same rules as last year. If you know songs for Hanukkah, Solstice, or other December holidays, please include those.
A repeat of the rules, with a few slight modifications:
PLEASE ONLY POST ONE LINK PER COMMENT. Otherwise, WordPress flags your comment as spam. If you want to put up multiple songs/lyrics/translations, post multiple comments. (You can comment as many times as you want.)
- Post a song title, a lyric, or translation of a holiday carol. (Translation must be a REAL one, not fed through Google translator.)
- 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.
