The Challenge: Fa, la, la, la, la… la, la, la, la.

In celebration of this holiday season, take your favorite holiday song and change the words to better fit your favorite SOE Game. Members of the SOE Community Team will select the best one(s) and sing them during the holiday webcast on December 16th, 2010.

Sample Carol: EverQuest Online Adventures community member Lear, who plays Corsten on Castle Lightwolf server wrote this carol last year and it was sung during our 2009 Season’s Greetings Webcast.

    Dinging Bells (Jingle Bells)


    Sprinting through the snow, Halas one zone away,
    down to Grobb we go, slaying all the way!
    Bells are 'bout to ring, cause I'm about to ding,
    what fun it is to run so far while grinding mobs tonight!


    EverQuest, it's the best, other games will fail,
    do those quests to be the best is where this game prevails!
    EverQuest, it's the best - compared to games I've played,
    oh what fun is it to play and quest the day away!

    A day or two ago, I dinged so many times,
    a guildy thought that he was higher than a kite.
    The herbs and roots did help, and some PL's did too,
    but my secret from me to you, is that I used the boon!


    EverQuest, it's the best, play for hours at end,
    by the time, you are thru, you’ll have no real life friends!
    EverQuest, it's the best, fifteen bucks a month,
    spend your cash, level fast, then pay for your next month!
