They’re blaring out of stores and radios, so why not have a little Christmas Song Trivia to kick off the season. This week, I’m giving you a snippet of the lyrics and you’ve got to guess the song. Some are common tunes and others are more obscure, traditional ones.
Either way, I think everyone is going to have a little fun. Grab some egg nog and let’s get started.
Feel like cheating? Here’s a Spotify Playlist with all the songs on it.
When you’re done with Christmas Song Trivia, please take a moment to review the show on iTunes or Podchaser. We need to those votes and support to help boost the show. There’s also a little bit more time before Christmas to order some Dorky Geeky Nerdy merchandise. That’s a great way to support the show and help pay our bills.

Name That Christmas Song – Episode Intro
Do you hear carolers? Well, here’s your chance to challenge them to some trivia!
Hey gang, this is episode 151 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy trivia podcast. I’m your host, Brian Rollins and this week it’s a Name That episode and a holiday one. For this week’s show, I’m going to give you a snippet of lyrics from a Christmas Carol and you just have to name that tune.
Fear not, you won’t have to hear me sing. Just listen to the words to see if you can figure out what song it comes from. Simple setup, but it might be tricky. Let me know what you think of the format. I’m debating using it for other music episodes.
I think that covers the basics, so let’s dive in with…
The Dorky Round
1. Follow me in merry measure / Fa la la la la la la la!
2. In fields where they / Lay their sheep / On a cold winter's night / That was so deep.
3. You know Dasher and Dancer And Prancer and Vixen Comet and Cupid And Donner and Blitzen But do you recall The most famous reindeer of all?
4. Five golden rings
5. All is calm. All is bright.
6. You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout. I'm telling you why.
7. With a corncob pipe and a button nose / And two eyes made out of coal
8. The moon is right. The spirit's up. We're here tonight. And that's enough.
9. Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin'? / In the lane, snow is glistenin'
10. Now it doesn't show signs of stoppin' / And I've brought some corn for poppin' / All the lights are turned way down low...
The Geeky Round
1. To save us all from Satan's power When we were gone astray O, tidings of comfort and joy
2. Bring me flesh, and bring me wine. Bring me pine logs hither. Thou and I will see him dine when we bear the thither.
3. Glory to the newborn King, peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled!
4. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
5. What a bright time, it's the right time To rock the night away
6. Where the treetops glisten And children listen To hear sleigh bells in the snow
7. She didn't see me creep. Down the stairs to have a peep. She thought that I was tucked up / In my bedroom, fast asleep.
8. City sidewalks, busy sidewalks / Dressed in holiday style
9. There'll be parties for hosting / Marshmallows for toasting / And caroling out in the snow
10. It has a lovely body, with legs so short and thin. When it gets all tired, it drops and then I win!
The Nerdy Round
1. The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay
2. O sisters too, how may we do for to preserve this day, This poor Youngling for whom we sing
3. Pray you, dutifully prime Your matin chyme, ye ringers; May you beautifully rime Your evetime song, ye singers
4. Christmas Eve will find me Where the lovelight gleams
5. A 54 convertible too, Light blue.
6. And when those blue snowflakes start falling / That's when those blue memories start calling
7. I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas / From the bottom of my heart
8. And all the bells on Earth shall ring / On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
9. Through the years we all will be together / If the fates allow
10. That glorious song of old / From angels bending near the earth / To touch their harps of gold
And that’s the last verse, kids. How did you do? Well, turn on any radio and you can cram for the next one. Whether you want to or not.
We’ll be back again next year for more trivia fun, here’s your clue:
“It’s a Wonderful Life, Home Alone, and Miracle on 34th Street are all examples of what type of movie?”
I think you might figure out where we’re going with this one. I hope to see you here next Wednesday.
