Decipher the Canticles…

This is a fun little thing I do with my classes at Christmas time, it could also be a fun thing for your next Christmas get together –  but first, you give it a try!

Just try and decipher or translate the following Christmas song titles.  They are popular Christmas songs put into different words that mean the same thing. 

For Example:  Sir Lancelot With Laryngitis

Sir Lancelot is a Knight.  If he has Laryngitis, he can’t talk – so he is Silent.  = Silent Night

Get it?

Give a few a try:

1.  Oh, Member of the Round Table with Missing Areas

 2.  Boulder of the Tinkling Metal Spheres

 3.  Vehicular Homicide was Committed on Dad’s mom by a Precipitous Darling

 4.  Wanted in December:  Top Forward Incisors

 5.  The Apartment of Two Psychiatrists

 6.  The Lad is a Diminutive Percussionist

  7.  Decorate the Hallways

Did you get them?

Here is the printout that have 25 song titles as well as the answers.

  1. This was fun and pretty funny. Let’s just say I’m glad we use the names of the songs that we do. What a mouthful and kinda confusing! I’ll put it in the save for later file.
