Guess the Carol
In lieu of Miracle Monday, we're bringing you another word cloud game. Each of the word clouds below is made of lyrics to popular Christmas songs. The larger a given word is in the cloud, the more often it appears in the song. (Note: Short verbs, pronouns, and determiners aren't included.)
Take the example above. The big words are child, bring, and night. Hear, little, shepherd, and boy are pretty big, too. Wait. Shepherd boy...hmm...that sounds familiar. Other familiar phrases are mighty king, voice...sea. Once you spot the word kite, you know that the song is "Do You Hear What I Hear?" (The word "do" is a short verb, and "you" is a pronoun, so they don't show up.)
Now you try the remaining nine clouds. Check your answers at the end — no peeking!
1. What Child is This?
2. Joy to the World
3. The Little Drummer Boy
4. O Little Town of Bethlehem
5. Mary Did You Know?
6. The First Noel
7. Go Tell It on the Mountain
8. I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
9. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks
