You mindlessly sing along, but do you ever stop to think what you are actually singing? Earlier today, I had to look up the meaning of yuletide. (Of or relating to the holiday season). So just for the falalala fun of it all, let’s troll the auld yuletide meanings of some other holiday headscratchers.
With a lot of help from Merriam-Webster, Oxford English Dictionary, and a couple of other noted sources (below), here are some of the most mis-understood and curious lyrics from Christmas songs. Bottoms up with a cup of good cheer, my friends, and please bring me some figgy pudding (Mashed figs, cream, and bread, boiled. Eww.) Oh, and enjoy some of the country versions of these timeless and seemingly senseless Christmas classics.
