Dec 07, 2004

Great! That was easy though since we had to do like 20 of those in gifted and they were even harder.
But I still liked it. Keep it up!
goldmare**
Dec 07, 2004

Yeah, I've always liked these. I got all but I think two of them. I did these in grade school. My favourites were the ones that were images, though. Like a knight with holes in his armor (O Holy Night). LOL

Dec 07, 2004

I take that back...I got all but one right away. I didn't get "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" which I really should have known... I did these a couple days ago but didn't reply right away, which is why I forgot how I did on them.

These are really fun. I think there should be a separate category for questions like this

In number 8, why does it say "Hey"?

I liked it. It was fun, nice, and easy enough to guess.
TiggrAus*
Dec 26, 2004

Very well thought out, but if I can figure all of them out in less than 20seconds that shows a major lack of difficulty. But keep em comin' in the same clever pattern, if not even more clever.

Dec 26, 2004

Fits the holiday, but I've seen all of these or versions of them before. And to be picky, pontificate doesn't mean "dream" according to my dictionary. Still, it looks like a lot of people enjoyed it.

I loved this one! It was nice to get an easy one that with a bit of thought I knew all the answers to for a change

Most days I'm stumped and feel stupid or embarassed 'cuz lotsa people get the answers.
jakeodee**
Jun 09, 2005

Great teaser
sweetime**
Jun 15, 2005

i didn't get "twelve days of christmas" mainly because i read the clue as 10 plus 2x24 (and i couldn't work out what 10 plus 48 could possibly be). maybe you could have "a dozen twenty four hour time periods....
KalliannAus*

Wonderful! THis one was pleasent to read and got me in the X-mas mood!

to krabcat: it is 10+2 =?(12) 24 hour days. Anyway loved this. Extremely cute. Got them all
BarticusAus*
Dec 26, 2005

I got them all quickly (though who says "pntificating" is dreaming?)

Minor nit: Winter Wonderland is not a Christmas song.

Easy fun, thanks.


Just one quibble - Bethlehem is in Palestine, not Israel. Do you want to start another war?
mogur*
Dec 26, 2005

MellowYellow, dude, you really must look up the definition of 'pontificate'. It means to pretend to be important, that is, to assume an air of high office. And although it was easy to figure out what you meant, white is also not colorless.

Got to defend you on the 10+2 24 hour one, though. Sure, some people can twist the math and come up with weird numbers, but the point is to arrive at a title of a Christmas song through the given clue. 10+2 is a valid way to portray the number 12.
OldChinaHand**

Dec 26, 2005

Very enjoyable - as others have said- also pretty easy but that isn't a critism - this time of year is supposed to be time of giving!!!! May you have a joyful Christmas Season -- ALL 12 DAYS of it!!!!!
shawneeo*us*
Dec 26, 2005

That was pretty easy, but lots of fun! Thanks!
teri12265us*
Dec 26, 2005

Good Christmas teaser!

Though 'fantasizing', 'hallucinating', or even 'imagining' would be more appropriate than 'pontificating'.

to Chynagirl - I like that! I've seen you use it in another one but didn't look closely enough.

teri12265us*
Dec 26, 2005

I mean OldChinaHand.

Tracey2209Aca*
Dec 26, 2005

Hey krabcat,

It says 10 + 2 twenty-four hour periods. That means 10 + 2 days, or 12 days. The teaser is written correctly. Great fun!!
Punk_RockerAus*
Dec 26, 2005

Easy, but VERY fun. Keep it up!
smosaka*
Dec 26, 2005

Very fun! I like teasers like this that are easy enough for me to do
(user deleted)
Dec 26, 2005

First of all, the song is "White Christmas", and second, for "Winter Wonderland" you added "walking in a winter wonderland" which wasn't the answer. I've seen much better than this. But good try.

oh shut up timiny, ur just ticked that you probably didnt get those tow. BA HUMBUG!
common-senseiAus*
Dec 26, 2005

Fun & timely. I got all of them with
only a little trouble. What so sad
about the renamed Christmas songs is that that's probably how
all those songs will get renamed in
future years due to political
correctness and anti Christian bias.
Let's not forget the reason for the
season. I'll get off of my soapbox
now. Happy Holy Days.

coachpisco*
Dec 26, 2006

I thought it was easy, but lots of fun. There are those that complain that it was too easy. I have written difficult teasers that were rejected so I can't figure out which way to go with them - easy or hard, complain, or be rejected. Sometimes it doesn't make sense. Good teaser. Keep them coming.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Dec 26, 2006

Easy or not!! If you can't find your own enjoyment in any of these teasers, then you should stay clear of them...LMAO It was fun matching the titles to the re-phrased/reworded titles. An Immensely Enjoyable teaser! Keep them coming! Old ones can confuse younger adults, as well as new ones confusing older adults.
bradon182001*us*
Dec 26, 2006

Nice. After a hectic holidsay, good to be able to relax with a teaser that is hard enough to make you think about the words, yet easy enough to know the answers. Thanks.

You need to look up the definition
of potificate.
thimblenogginus*
Dec 28, 2006

I don't want to pontificate about this but..... it irks me when a word is used incorrectly.
QrystalAca*
Jan 02, 2007

That was cute and much easier than I thought it would be when I first started working on it; I've seen more difficult versions of this same kind of teaser. But that's not a complaint, because I like it when I can breeze through a teaser quickly and get back to whatever I was doing beforehand.

I learned a new word today, too! I thought pontificate meant what you thought it meant when writing this teaser!! I'm glad to know better now!
Cat-Lady*us*
Jan 09, 2007

Very Festive I enjoyed humming along with this one. Keep them coming

I was hoping by now somebody would have corrected "pontificate". Been several years now since that error has been pointed out but nobody seems to do anything about it....

Ah well.
