DD needed some help with her homework tonight. We have figured out all but two of these cryptic Christmas carols (I put the two we don't have in bold text . I posted all of them though as I found some amusing. I thought perhaps you could help us out. I am sure I'll slap my forehead when someone posts the answer. [dunce]

I thought it was a rather fun homework assignment (DD's language arts teacher is a good one) and wanted to share. I was surprised DD didn't know more of these carols--although we don't go to church and she doesn't watch much TV.
