MACLA Christmas Quiz 2009

For this year's MACLA christmas quiz , I present you with the first verses of 5 Christmas carols or songs. All you have to do is name the five songs. Simple enough! The only slight problem is that the verses are all in code. As it's Christmas, I've kept it simple - all the codes are simple substitution codes where one letter is replaced by another letter (e.g. B=A, C=B, D=C etc....)

If you get really stuck, there's a hidden hint in the Editor's Corner of this magazine.
Answers in the next edition.

Merry Christmas
