Cool yule. Nice mix of PID and Marathon. As you say not easy coming up with the right number of items and still keeping the rhyme. Some obvious and some not so obvious. 'Three burnt wicks'... love it. :)

You know I seem to remember somebody trying this before, maybe not the same song but a common Christmas tune. Really need to track this stuff down and compile it for posterity (or at least for next Xmas). ;)

Cheers
