When I made this quiz last year, I had to cheat to squeeze all the lyrics into the 200 answer limit by combining some smaller words. Now that we can go to 300, that has been fixed.

How is this a Christmas carol?
Dec 23rd, 2010 at 15:13 GMT
You're taking the word carol too literally. Colloquially, all songs about Christmas are Christmas carols.

haha! great stuff! it's certainly not a traditional "carol" but it is a Christmas song at least. I don't know all of the lyrics, but I got most of them on the first try.

Actually, "carols" are songs related to the birth of Jesus and "songs" are anything secular related to Christmas. So this, as are most of the other "Christmas carol" quizzes on Sporcle, is not actually a carol.

I understand the distinction, hence my explanation about "colloquially." When people say they are going "carolling" for example, they don't mean that they are only going to sing songs about Jesus. So yes, technically and linguistically there is a distinction between a carol and a mere song, but it's not a distinction that is commonly observed in usage.

I've never heard of this. Must not have crossed the Atlantic!

haha YES! I love this song, didn't figure it out until I had 'Merry Christmas my friend!' This was on the radio the other day and no one but me recognized it, sad day.

I love this song it's great and tells a good story of the Christmas Truce in World War I when the two side stoped fighting for a few weeks.

@triplet_3...The song is from 1967. I'm pretty sure it "crossed the Atlantic." It reached #1 in New Zealand and I don't have European chart information but this song was a follow-up to Snoopy vs. the Red Baron, which reached #6 on the UK charts.
