    All of the following lines come from Christmas songs (or, in some cases, songs not intended for but now associated with Christmas); mostly common ones but a few not-so-common ones. See how many you can recognize!

    1. "Gee, the traffic is terrific!"

    2. "It'll be just like a picture-print by Currier and Ives."

    3. "No crocodiles, or rhinoceroses."

    4. "Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again!"

    5. "The ox and lamb kept time."

    6. "There'll be scary ghost stories..."

    7. "The lights are turned way down low."

    8. "This latitude weakens my knees."

    9. "You can do the job when you're in town."

    10. "Somebody waits for you; kiss her once for me."

    11. "...with a tail as big as a kite."

    12. "I'm still reliving my trip to the NQC."

    All of those are correct except for #1 and #4 (#5 should be #4).

    Are there repeats of the titles? I had #1 and #7 the same, at first.

    No repeats. Only one line from each song.

    All correct! Now the 8th and 12th are less common ones, but here they are again:

    8. "This latitude weakens my knees."

    12. "I'm still reliving my trip to the NQC."
