I love Christmas carols and hymn - I really do. They remind me of how excited I used to feel around this time of year when I was a kid: just about bursting with anticipation. There's something really nice about just knowing all the words and being able to sing them with alomst anyone - a very "community" kind of experience.
But. For almost a week now I have had a fragment of some Christmas tune I don't really know stuck in my head:
..Willie, play your fife and drum, Robin [something, something hum a bit here];Tu-ra-lu-ra-lu, Pat-a-pat-a-pan...
And that's all I know. And it's not even a great song. Heck, it's not even a traditional carol. And it's driving me crazy!
This type of thing is called an earworm. It's a great name for a REALLY IRRITATING THING.
