Merry Christmas, Mondegreenies!

The winners!

Congratulations to the winners of Round 3, each of whom will soon be receiving a thoughtfully selected book from my personal library:

  1. Joan Schutt (10:44am)
  2. Julie Benda (10:45am)
  3. Susan Culp (10:46am)

Special mention

Let me give a special shout-out to Dori Dykstra. Dori got into the game late, and she sent me her answers to Round 2 while most of you were playing Round 3. But she had the creative verve to send this as the subject line of her emailed entry:

Da reef eye Nellie ants wars

Yes, it’s a mondegreen for “Dori finally answers”! Isn’t that terrific? Congratulations, Dori. I’m going to send you a book too.

Final answers

  • Hoe Comma Leaf Hateful = O Come, All Ye Faithful

  • Won Norse Soap Pencil Lay = One-Horse Open Sleigh

  • Mare Reek Wrist Massed Due Wall Undo Awe Lug Wooden Height = Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night!

Christmas blessings

All that said, thank you for playing along—not just at Christmas, but throughout the year. Unlike any other kind of writing, blogging gives me an opportunity to engage in conversation with my readers, and I really enjoy that.

Merry Christmas!
