  5. 5. 5 3. Christmas Song – A1 → A2 Listening In the following activity, three well-known Christmas songs have been jumbled up. Ask your students to listen to the songs and then match each verse to the correct song title: White Christmas, Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas Just like the ones I used to know. Where the treetops glisten and children listen To hear sleigh bells in the snow. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas With every Christmas card I write May your days be merry and bright And may all your Christmases be white. Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Let your heart be light. From now on, our troubles will be out of sight. Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Make the Yule-tide gay, From now on, our troubles will be miles away. Here we are as in olden days, Happy golden days of yore. Faithful friends who are dear to us Gather near to us once more. Through the years We all will be together, If the Fates allow. Hang a shining star upon the highest bough. And have yourself a merry little Christmas now. You know Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, and Cupid, and Donner and Blitzen But do you recall The most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose and if you ever saw it you would even say it glows. All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names. They never let poor Rudolph play in any reindeer games. Then one foggy Christmas Eve Santa came to say: "Rudolph with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?" Then all the reindeer loved him as they shouted out with glee, “Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you'll go down in history!”
