Christmas Anagrams!

Postby Saint » Thu, 01 Dec 2005 8:00 pm

Just when you thought you'd seen the last of the anagrams they're back!

As it's 1st December, I thought I'd do a Christmas themed one.

All these are either Christmas Carols or famous Christmas Songs, e.g White Christmas

1. No Hotel To Befit Them Well
2. Hatefully Facile Homo
3. Skinhead Enthrals Haggler
4. Deplored He Is The Odder Runner
5. In The Glints
6. Scowling Geek And So
7. Worthier Teenage Foreskin
8. Grindingly Grim Hood Hen
9. No Fit Shelter
10. Fonts Warm Honesty
11. Stuttering Hardcore Chain Smoker (Just for you Sapphire :wink: )
12. To Wishy Washy Rare Crummies
13. Actual Snow Tons It's Magic No
14. Vasectomy If Shrewd Stealth
15. Not Advisory Indelicacy
16. Wild renowned Rant
17. Symbolic Hardy
18. Troubledly Trim Me
19. Seemly Regret Trendy Gnome
20. Smugly Green Eyed Tormentor

Have fun.......I hope!

I am extremely grateful to my parents that they only taught me Christmas songs in French, that will AT LEAST save me 5 hours this week... :cool:

It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

1. Minuit chretiens
2. Il est ne le divin enfant
3. Cantique de Noël

(but n°3 is not a song I believe... It can be translated as Christmas Carol)

Thanks anyway!

According to Google yes they are the same, but "cantique" is another word for song, so it's a very generic term.

OK, so where and when will you sing for me? :P
