Default Sunday Quiz 19th December HO HO HO!

Hello my fellow tort lovers, this weeks quiz has a special theme: can you guess what it might be?
The first ten questions are all lines from Christmas carols - simply name the carol

1) Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la
Deck The Halls

2) The playing of the merry organ, sweet singing of the choir
The Holly And The Ivy

3) Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying sealed in the stone-cold tomb
We Three Kings

4) In fields where they lay keeping their sheep on a cold winter's night that was so deep
The First Noel

5) The cattle are lowing the baby awakes
Away In A Manger

6) Glories stream from heaven afar, Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Silent Night

7) With the poor and mean and lowly, lived on Earth our saviour Holy
Once In Royal David's City

8) Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel
O Come, O Come Emanuel

9) O sing choirs of angels, sing in exultation
O Come All Ye Faithful

10) When a poor man came in sight, Gath'ring winter fuel
Good King Wenceslas

25) Mr Blobby (go on - you can guess at this one!)
