    (The game is called "Acronyms" but these are not really acronyms; this kinda bothers me but oh well.)

    Christmas Initials

    The following are initials for the first lines of various Christmas songs. Not the titles, but the first lines. For example, SNHNAICAIB would be “Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright” – which is the first line of the song.

    20. Sleigh bells ring are you listening, in the lane snow is glistening
    22. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose
    25. Oh holy night, the stars are brightly shining
    34. Have yourself a merry little Christmas
    41. Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree how beautiful and bright
    50. The holy and the ivy, when they are both full grown
    52. Rocking around the Christmas Tree
    at the Christmas party hop
    60. I wonder as I wonder out under the sky

    Students, you are all doing so WELL! I'm so proud of you!

    (It's that positive reinforcement thing. Mean teachers like me have to practice sometimes.)

    Seriously, I love word puzzles like these. I'm using this one tonight at the Largest Family Reunion in the History of the Universe. Mom is here as I type, WASHING MY FRONT DOOR. And what am I doing? Heh, I did most of it last night so I could goof off at my computer before 'they' get here.
