Keith Massey presents a Latin version of Jingle Bells!


Jingle Bells in Latin! (Translated by Charles Mierow)

Nives, glacies, nox, puertia!
Risus decet, nunc decent carmina!
Laetos iuvat nos ire per agros!
Traha fert velociter, et cachinemus nos!

CHORUS: Tinniat, tinniat tintinnabulum
Labimur in glacie post mulum curtum!
Tinniat, tinniat tintinnabulum!
Labimur in glacie post mulum curtum!

Me nuper miserum temptavit lunae lux!
Mox assidebat tum puella facti dux!
Vecti subito in nivis cumulos
Caballus est perterritus et tunc eversi nos!


Solum scintillat, nive candidum,
Repetatur nunc concentus carminum!
Canities abest morosa omnibus!
Puellulas cum pueris delectat hic cursus.
