Timewaster Tuesday: Quick and Easy Christmas Carol Game

My family can turn anything into a game. Even Christmas Carols. The easiest games ever are alphabet games, and that’s a fun one to do with Christmas Carols too!

So, the basics of the game are that we start at A, think of a Christmas song that starts with A, and then sing it. Then we move on to B. Here are my favorites!

Angels We Have Heard on High

Birthday of a King

Coventry Carol

Deck the Halls

(Everybody’s Waitin’ For) the Man with the Bag

Frosty the Snowman

Grown-up Christmas List

Happy Holidays

I’ll Be Home for Christmas

Jingle Bell Rock

Keep Christmas With You

Let it Snow!

Must Be Santa

Nuttin’ for Christmas

Oh, Holy Night

Peace on Earth – Little Drummer Boy

*Quelle est cette odeur agréable? – found by Rosalind

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Santa Clause is Coming to Town


Up on the Housetop

*Verbum caro factum est – found by Anne

Winter Wonderland

*X-mas Song – found by Rosalind, sung by Korn. Come on, it’s X!

You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch

*Zither Song, the – found by Mike P

Try playing this game with the relatives this season. Don’t forget to sing each song!

Also, I give eternal gratitude and virtual cookies to those who can fill in my empty letters!

UPDATE: Filled in all the letters with a little help! Thanks!

    Don’t know if it counts – but I have a CD called “A Medieval Christmas” and one of the songs is “Verbum caro factum est” IT’s more a hymn than a carol, but maybe it could work 🙂

      I always count Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus and the Handel Messiah pieces in my Christmas music, so I don’t see why not! I don’t think I’ve sung that one before.

    You could sing “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” in Latin for “V” — “Veni Emmanuel.”

    There is also a carol called “The Zither Carol,” for “Z.” Not well known, but it is real and exists — it’s on James Galway’s Christmas album, among other places.
