We are in the midst of a final push to get the house sorted out before Christmas, after which visitors start to descend on us (yay!). Unpacking is just not very Christmassy, so I have put carols on in a bid to make the work feel more festive.
One thing I have noticed is that Meg is walking around the house singing “Oh well, Oh well, born is the king of Israel”. I tried to explain that it is Noel, but she said that it doesn’t make any sense my way. She is also singing “Rusty the Snowman” because apparently “Frosty” is a silly name! “Silent night, oily night” is in the mix too.
|Miss Meg is full of mischief… and is sooo cute (not that I am biased)|
There is no way to convince her that the words she is singing are wrong (which is really annoying Hannah), so we continue to sing “oily” instead of holy in every carol. It makes me giggle, but I am now also singing Meg’s version of the carols.
I used to think the “Herald Angels” (from “hark the herald angels sing) was a choir at the Sun Herald (Sydney news paper).
What carols did you get confused about as a child (or even as an adult)???
