Okay, this really bugs me.

In the 12 days of Christmas, the 4th verse should be "colly birds", which is a type of black bird. No such thing as a "calling bird". (I also hate when the verses are anything BUT 12 drummers, 11 pipers, 10 lord, and 9 ladies...)

And the phrasing of Silent Night is really screwy... it's like

All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child

But it should really go:

All is calm
All is brought round yon virgin mother (and child).

(Similarly the third verse should be "Son of God, love's pure light radiant from thy holy face", not "Son of God/Love's pure light/Radiant beams from thy holy face".)

Does this bug anyone else? What are your Christmas carol pet peeves? =P
