Carols of the Book

Elise Hartung

Have you ever wondered which Christmas Carol would be voted “Queen Bee”? Look no further. This interview with sophomore Tori Fee covers that and more. To set the scene, imagine an old high school yearbook. Now, imagine it’s full of Christmas carols that went to school together, and that’s where this interview takes place.

Elise: How would you feel about ranking Christmas carols with me?

Tori: Oh yeah that would be fun.

Elise: Cool, cool. Let’s start with the most basic questions. What is the best carol? And what is the worst one?

Tori: I’m not sure. Let me look some up real quick…Okay. “Sleigh Bells” is the best. “Carol of the Bells” could be too. I can’t choose.

Elise: Fair enough, I suppose. Here’s another idea. Do you want to give different “Most Likely to” categories to carols like they do in yearbooks? I thought it could be a twist on the normal ranking system.

Tori: Of course I would. Do you even have to ask?

Elise: Perfect. Let’s start with an easy one. Which carol would you say is “Most Likely to Please the Crowd”?

Tori: I’d have to say “Carol of the Bells” again, not going to lie. It’s just such a bop.

Elise: Can’t disagree with that flawless logic.  Okay, next. What’s “Most Likely to Make Someone Sing Along”?

Tori: Oh that’s a tough one. I’d have to go with “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. Who doesn’t like making fun of a poor reindeer?

Elise: I would hope most people, but I guess I don’t know. Speaking of which, this one is a little more serious. Which carol is “Most Likely to Cause Crying”? At least in your eyes.

Tori: First of all, how dare you. Second of all, “What Christmas Means To Me” is the most emotional song I’ve ever heard, and no one can tell me otherwise.

Elise: I mean they could….

Tori: Stop it right now before I walk out the door and off a bridge.

Elise: Okay, okay. This is the last and most important one. Which Christmas carol would be the “Queen Bee” of high school?

Tori: Am I allowed to say “Sleigh Bells” again? No? Okay, then what about “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer”?

Elise: That’s fair game. “Carol of the Bells” is the only carol that can be nominated twice in one in one interview.

Tori: That’s valid. Did you say that was the last question? I’m running out of brain cells here.

Elise: Yes, Tori. That was the last question.  You’re free to go. Have a merry Christmas!

Tori: A merry Chrysler, of course.

Elise: Of course. Thank you for your time!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
