Holiday song / carol quiz

This is a quiz that I came up with as something to pass the time while we waited for people to arrive at our recent work gift exchange party.  So I thought I would pass it on to you guys to see how you do.

Below you will find the first lines of 25 holiday songs / carols.  But each line has been compressed with just the first letter of each word.  For example SBRAYL would be “Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?” from the song Winter Wonderland.  Some are more difficult than others – how many can you get?

I will note that most if not all of these answers can be found somewhere on the Internet.  Come up with your answers in the comments and just note how many you could get without relying on Internet help for an accurate comparison with those that choose not to use it.

  24. IBTLALLC
  25. RATCTATCPH

The winner at our little get-together got 16 right (in about 15 minutes or so) – just as a comparison.  Good luck!

    Hee hee hee. The only clue I will give is that you will note that this is not advertised as a “Christmas song / carol quiz”….
