First Lines

Friday December 24, 2021

It is Christmas Eve, and we will have lots going on so this is a fun easy blog about first lines we can remember, and those we cannot. 
When I think of Christmas I think of the following first line:
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
What is it about first lines that we can remember but sometimes we get this a bit mixed up? 
Other Christmas first lines I can remember:
So, this is Christmas and what have you done?
Dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh 
I can recall a few first line of Christmas songs but not all of them. Some I confuse like the 12 days of Christmas. I know the first five but then I get mixed up. I can also remember a few first lines from songs and books.

A long, long time ago / I can still remember how / That music used to make me smile...

Hello darkness my old friend, 
‘It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.’

‘All children, except one, grow up.’

Or you know a first line but not sure where it comes from. Forget Google, Moodscope members will help. So, think of those first lines stuck in your brain and release them. Share your first lines and see if we can guess the song, book etc they come from without Googling.
