Christmas Carol Contest (Season II)

For those of you who knew of Treble Clef last year around this time, you may recall the amazing Christmas Carol Contest I hosted last year. {see here}
Lots of people entered, but HayHay, author of Fish Flakes, dominated the competition by being able to answer ALL of the carols correctly.
This year's competition is going to be extremely challenging- but it will be SO WORTH IT if you are the lucky winner.

Here's how to enter. Below, listed are several lines from Christmas carols. Some are well-known, some are not. You must then comment with each number and you answer (what carol you think the line is from) Hit submit and you're entered. You MUST ONLY USE YOUR MIND AND THE MINDS OF YOUR FAMILY to get the answers. Please don't cheat and look it up on the internet.
If you enter, please also take this button to put on your blog to tell people you entered and direct them here so they can enter too.


Finally, how to win. The first person to get ALL the carols correct by Christmas, is the winner! If we get to Christmas and nobody has gotten all of them correct, then the person who got the highest percentage right wins.
The prize? Since I only got 2 entries to my photo contest, I canceled that and I'm using the same prize as that would have had because it was not used.

The Robin's Nest Deluxe Package valued at $35!
Including:
1 background paper (scrolling or stable)

And now, the lines from the carols.....
1.
Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
2. 
Oh how they pound,
raising the sound, 
3.
For black and for white (if you want it)
For yellow and red ones (war is over)
Let's stop all the fight (now)
4.
...shepherds quake at the sight
5.
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices
 6.
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
7.
...earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone.
8.
..when that blue heartache starts hurting.
9.
We're snuggled up together like two
Birds of a feather would be.
10.
The King of kings, salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.
 11.
Although it's been said
many times, many ways
12.
He comes to make His blessing flow
far as the curse is found,
13.
It's been a year
It doesn't surprise me
14.
A star, a star, dancing in the night  


15.
When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God?
16.
Where the treetops glisten
and children listen 
17.
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
18.
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that man no more may die
19.
And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.
20.
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Seal'd in the stone-cold tomb. 
21.
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong, and mocks the song.."
22.
...knew the sun was hot that day
23.
Somebody waits for you;
Kiss her once for me
