You are ‘Jingle…

Jingle Bells

You are 'Jingle Bells'! Full of enthusiasm and
good cheer, you are excited by the first
appearances of Christmas decorations in shops
and have been heard singing along to the piped
music. Your attitude to Christmas is one of
childlike delight - with a slightly mercenary
streak. You definitely believe in Santa (you
get more presents that way) and will put up
your Christmas tree as early as possible. You
really like carolling, and presents, and mince
pies, and pudding, and will insist on getting
everyone up at dawn to open presents
immediately. So long as the food and presents
are good, you will have a great Christmas.

What Christmas Carol are you?

  1. You are ‘Deck the Halls’! Let’s be honest, it isn’t Christmas you are celebrating, is it? In fact, you know full well that there were no shepherds in the fields in December, and that the date of Christmas was put at midwinter specifically to coincide with the older celebrations of Yule and the birth of Mithras. An unashamed Pagan, you take great glee in the number of carols referring to holly, evergreens and Winter’s end, and will sing them with gusto. You know where they really came from. And you do enjoy the seasonal celebrations, regardless of their name… A merry Yule to you!

    Well I’m not Pagan, and I don’t really give a damn about Mithras… but “Deck the Halls” isn’t an entirely bad choice. I think these quizzes are just not built to encompass a Jew who loves Christmas as much as I do.

  2. They didn’t have the best Christmas stories as choices on that question: _The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe_ and _The Dark Is Rising_. Very sad.

  3. I’m afraid I didn’t take the Quizilla test, but there’s one Christmas song that resonates with me, and for two reasons. The first is that it was written and recorded by one of my favorite bands, Emerson, Lake and Palmer (I have at least as much interest in classical and experimental music as rock and folk). The second is the sentiment of the lyrics, which is very clearly stated throughout the piece.

    I’ve enclosed a copy of the lyrics for your edification. Enjoy!

    “I Believe In Father Christmas” (G. Lake/P. Sinfield)

    They said there’ll be snow at Christmas
    They said there’ll be peace on earth
    But instead it just kept on raining
    A veil of tears for the virgin birth.

    I remember one Christmas morning
    A winter’s light and the distant choir
    And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell
    Eyes full a tinsel and fire.

    They sold me a dream of Christmas
    They sold me a silent night
    They told me a fairy story
    Till I believed in the Israelite.

    And I believed in Father Christmas
    I looked to the sky with excited eyes
    Than I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
    And I saw him through his disguise.

    I wish you a hopeful Christmas
    I wish you a brave new year
    All anguish, pain, and sadness
    Leave your heart and let your road be clear.

    They said there’d be snow at Christmas
    They said there’d be peace on earth.
    Hallelujah, Noel, Be it heaven or hell,
    The Christmas we get we deserve.
