Meaning
I think this song is trying to say that there is magic in imagination. In the movie, when Frosty and the children come across an adult, the adult has a look of disbelief. The movie also show that you have to learn to let go and not become to attached to something you've made up because that can also be bad. At the end of the movie, the little girl who stayed with Frosty when he was melting was really sad, and that is natural, but Frosty said to not cry because he will always come back on Christmas Day. As the old saying goes: "If you love something let it go, if it was meant to be, then it will come back to you and if it wasn't meant to be then it will stay away" I don't know where I am going with this I was just trying to get an awesome on the scale thy have. If you read all this then good job and thanks. If you didn't read all this then you don't know if I'm saying bad things about you, but don't worry I am not. Read more →

Meaning
We three kings is a song meant to explain the meaning of the gifts of the wisemen. They brought precious gifts to the young child Jesus to honor him. The gold shows his value and importance: that he is king. The frankincense was an offering of worship, given to show his deity: that he is god. The myrrh was a valuable spice used in embalming, signifying the reason he came was to die for the sins of mankind: he is the perfect sacrifice. Read more →

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
You really are a heel.

The stanza seen here contains ironic remarks regarding The Grinch's character; "Cuddly as a cactus" and "Charming as an eel" are indeed ironic, as a cactus is far from cuddly, and people aren't exactly c
harmed by eels. Another interesting line is "You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel"; this implies that The Grinch is hideous not just on the outside, but inside as well. Read more →

Wham! – Last Christmas
Editors choice

Meaning
Last Christmas by George Michael is amazing! The protagonist in this song has finally found his true love and won't make the mistake he made the year before. The melody by itself is an amazing piece of music and makes you feel really happy whereas once you know the lyrics it becomes quite depressing but doesn't make it feel any less uplifting. It's actually quite romantic and the protagonist actually had the courage to say (or write) I love you and it gives a really nice tone to the song. The rhyme and rhythm in the song is wonderful with lots of 'a' sounds in away and gave. The real point is 'now I found a real love you'll never fool me again'. Just my thoughts. Read more →

Troll the ancient Yule-tide carol
This song was adapted from an old Welsh song so a lot of the language is out-dated. Troll or Troul is an archaic word for singing jovially and/or loudly, in a carefree manner.
Yule was the pagan winter tradition th
at people practiced before Christianity and Christmas became the popular holiday. So Yule-tide here means the season of Yule, or Christmas-time in modern day.

Three wise men
There would have been more than one caravan. The magi or wise men traditionally came from three different areas of the world, Persia (known from 1980 as the Islamic Republic of Iran), India and Arabia. The Bible does
not say how many people arrived to visit the Christ Child, but lists the three gifts symbolizing His kingship (gold), divinity (frankincense) and ultimate death (myrrh). Because of these three gifts it became the convention to refer only to three wise men. Read more →
