First Line Fridays - 12/9/16 - Christmas Song Edition


Good morning (or afternoon) and a very happy friday to you! As Christmas approaches and the hustle and the bustle becomes more overwhelming...I hope you can take a few minutes to relax, breathe...and join in some First Line fun! 


As you may have guessed, I am focusing on all things Christmas this month! Because, it is my FAVORITE season! Today...I wanted to do something a little different and share with you the first line from one of my FAVORITE Christmas songs EVER! 



I don't remember the first time I heard this song...But it has always been one of my favorites! I remember as a kid, rushing to record it onto a cassette tape when it came on the radio, and then listening to it over and over, singing it at the top of my lungs.

It never gets old and every year I do a happy dance whenever it comes on.

I included the video for your viewing pleasure...The first line of Snoopy vs. The Red Baron:

"The news had come out in the First World War
The bloody Red Baron was flying once more
The Allied command ignored all of its men
And called on Snoopy to do it again."


Ok I cheated a bit...




Post the first line of your favorite Christmas song below and head over to see what First Lines my lovely friends have today!

  1. My first line is from Boney M's Mary's Boy Child: "Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible said, Mary's boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day."
    But it is always coupled with Oh, My Lord and it's first line is: "Oh my Lord
    You sent your son to save us."

  2. My favorite Christmas song is Carol of the Bells. :) My first line is: "Once upon a time--specifically, last December--author Maren Grant had what she thought might be the most perfect night of her life." One Enchanted Christmas by Melissa Tagg

  3. oh! such fun!! But I have NEVER heard this song before hahaha!! No wonder I couldn't guess it earlier ;)

    My favorite Christmas song is actually a newer one - Jesus Saves by Travis Cottrell. The first line is "Hear the heart of heaven beating. Jesus saves, Jesus saves."

  4. Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
    Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
    Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
    This child that you've delivered, will soon deliver you

  5. I feel like being a bit silly today, especially after watching Snoopy so...
    "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
    Only a hippopotamus will do
    Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinkertoy
    I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy"
    I have loved this song for many years, I hate that it's in a commercial now.

  6. My book this week is Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me and the first line from Chapter 24 'Now What?' is:

    "The degree to which David has deviated from L. Ron Hubbard's management directives since he took power in the 1980s has had several consequences that I don't think he ever predicted."

    Happy Friday!
