If you subscribe to our weekly emails, you already know that I’m a big fan of puns and wordplay. In mid-December 2020, I suggested some alternative versions of well-known carols and Holiday songs. I also challenged our subscribers to come up with alternative lyrics to their favorites and added a small incentive in terms of a shopping credit.
“There’s no place BUT home for the holidays…”
“Silent Night, no one in sight…”
“I’ll be home for Christmas, where else would I go?”
“Jingle Bells, my mask smells, garlic rolls for lunch…”
“Joy to the world, the vaccine has come…”
Deck the halls with lots of Clorox, fa la la la la ... Sleigh bells rigged are you listening... Deb M.
And some of your rewrote entire songs!

Denise S,
But the winner based on my very unscientific preference was:
