Christmas Carol Quiz (with thanks to Akelamalu for the idea)

Over at everything and nothing, Akelamalu has created a Christmas Carol Quiz but, alas, I missed the deadline of last weekend (since I didn't discover it until today). However, I don't believe she's posted answers yet ... so perhaps there's still time to play. I've got them all figured out but one, but I can't find her email address. Such is life!

I've created a similar Quiz here. Play or not as you choose, but I'll post answers on December 15th. That's about 2 weeks from now. You can email your answers to me through my profile so you don't give the answers away prematurely :)

To borrow her instructions: Just to get you in the mood for Christmas ... remember the Nursery Rhyme quizzes? Well this is a bit like those only the initials represent the first line of Christmas Carols and Songs.
Here's an example:
O.I.R.D.C. - Once In Royal David's City - get the idea?

So here's my version of the Christmas Carol Quiz:
  1. T A S I T A
  2. W C I T W L T R
  3. A F T R O G
  4. J T T W T L H C
  5. I C U A M C
  6. O C A Y F
  7. T F N T A D S
  8. W T K O O A
  9. I T B M F W M M
  10. G C M R
Disclaimer: Unfortunately I have nothing to offer but "fun" as a reward because I have no clue how to create these clever buttons, but I come from a generation (now mostly extinct like dinosaurs) where such rewards weren't necessary incentives. We entertained ourselves and one another with a wide assortment of mental games involving words :)

Hi storyteller, thanks for stopping by my blog. The deadline for my quiz is actually tomorrow but I suppose it's a bit short notice now. Anyway if I wasn't so busy hospital visiting etc I'd have a go at yours definitely. Good luck with it. :)

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by and leave a comment here :)

Now that I've got your email address (and realize I've not missed the deadline after all) I've emailed my answers to YOUR quiz to you. I figured out #8 as I was pulling weeds yesterday in the garden :)

I fully understand about you not having time to give my quiz a whirl, but hopefully there will be some brave souls who do tackle it for fun. Here's hoping your dad has a speedy recovery and your life calms down a bit.
Hugs and blessings,

We really don't need a prize to have a little fun. If you want me to make you a button, just let me know. I would gladly do it for you.


storyteller said...

What a generous offer! That would, of course, be LOVELY if you have the time and are so inclined. Thanks so much :)
Hugs and blessings,

I'm still working on your quiz Virginia....have about half of them. These are tough...I like it.

storyteller said...

Joy -- I'm glad to know you're having fun with this.
That's most important :)
Hugs and blessings,

Whoops! Mea culpa and thanks to Joy for pointing out an error on my part in clue #7 as posted initially. I've fixed it in the post already so the clue list is accurate as of December 1st. For those of you who are working off the faulty list, the final "C" in clue #7 should be an "S". I offer my sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused anyone. I guess I was so concerned about reversing the letters (being the dyslexic soul I've always been) that I overlooked the substitution.

So -- Joy's emailed her list with 9 of the 10 figured out and is still mulling over the last one. That's what happened to me with Akelamalu's list, and the final one hit me as I was weeding the garden one day :)

Hope you're all having fun!
Hugs and blessings,
