One of the lamest songs they ever did. Chuck Berry's Run, run Rudolph is far superior.

11 of 13. I mixed up lightning and frightening. Also goggles and glasses. I did it again, sped through the quiz too fast... Last I noticed there wasn't a countdown clock on these quizzes! I have to lay off watching the gameshows!! Thanks for another fun quiz METV! Enjoy the Holidays!!!

I am terribly partial to The Pogues "Fairytale of New York."

If you are unfamiliar, be forewarned, it is a bit gritty.

12 out of many times as I've heard the song, I should know that the answer to the last question is 'pad'. Should I turn in my Beach Boys fan club card now?

5/13. Guess this isn't a Christmas classic to me (although I do like the Beach Boys).

This one and "The Man With All the Toys" are the ones that get the most airplay at Christmas.

I don't know that I ever heard that song. Just tried to deduce the rhymes and the reasons. (Of course, some of my deduces were wild.)

7/13 Hmmm…? I thought I knew the lyrics. What have I been singing for years? 🤷‍♀️
Probably the Mandela Effect version.

Not too difficult, but I still bombed.
I have always thought that "Christmas comes this time each year" is the funniest line in any holiday song.
