Trivia 12/25 - Merry Christmas!

trivia 12/25 - Christmas Music
Following the Protestant Reformation, groups such as the Puritans strongly condemned the celebration of Christmas, considering it a Catholic invention and the "trappings of popery" or the "rags of the Beast."

We'll get you back in the kitchen in a hurry today with this easy quiz..........


1. "Round yon virgin mother and child"
2. "Bearing gifts we traverse afar"
3. "And Heaven and nature sing"
4. "Tis the season to be jolly"
5. "God and sinners reconciled"
6. "Disperse the gloomy clouds of night"
7. "Looked down where he lay"
8. "On a cold winter's night that was so deep"
The largest snowman ever built stood over 110 feet tall !

1. Silent Night
2. We Three Kings
3. Joy to the World
4. Deck the Halls
5. Hark! the Herald Angels Sing
6. O Come O Come Emmanuel
7. O Come All Ye Faithful
8. Away in a Manger
Take 9,000,000 pounds of snow, two 4 foot wreathes to use as eyes, 6 feet of chicken wire and muslin for the carrot nose, 6 automobile tires as the mouth, a 20 foot fleece hat, a 120 foot fleece scarf, 3 more tires for the buttons and two 10 foot trees for the arms, assemble, and you have the world's largest snowman.
The snowman went by the name of Angus and was built in Bethel, Maine in 1999. He officially melted on June 10, 1999.
Angus was a mountain of a snowman, measuring 113 feet 7 inches tall.

Merry Christmas LT! Thanks for making it an easy one today, my self esteem has taken a few hits in recent days. Got 'em all today and I'm still humming.

Love the snowman story too! For some reason though I'm picturing Calvin and Hobbes snowmen. LOL!
