Christmas Music In Other Words…

My Dad was an English teacher for nigh unto 35 years. He used to use many tricks to try the class involved and attentive. One that he pulled out around this time of year was a quiz called “Are our Auditory Perceptions Similar?” He would have a list of phrases and then the students would have to “translate” them.  Sounds similar in a lot of ways to hashtag wars to me! If I was using it like that I would call it #Christmasmusicinotherwords The first one BTW is “Do you hear what I hear?”
