Fa La La La La 

(aka Trivia Game)

There are 25 questions.
 One for each day in December till Christmas Day!

All questions pertain to Christmas Carols, their origins, writers and lyrics.
At the end of each question is a pair of music Fa and La notes that look like this:

Just place your cursor over the notes to see if you are right or wrong.
The correct answer will appear.

If using a smart phone to view these pages, just put your finger on the symbol and hold it for a moment. A pop up that contains the answer will appear. To close the pop up, just tap elsewhere on the screen.

  These are NOT LINKS!
Now keep track!
If you are wrong give yourself a "Fa"
If you are right, give yourself a "La"

At the end of the game,  each player has to sing out loud (in order) all their Fa's and all their La's.   A good Christmas Caroler will sing nothing but "La, La, La, La, La...." etc.
If you're like me, you'll be singing, "Fa, Fa, Fa, La, Fa, La, Fa, Fa, Fa..."   he he. :)

OK, clear your minds.  Clear your throats and get ready!
