Ditloids For Christmas 2012 [Set By Our Science Department: I Don't Have The Answers]
There is a theme: Christmas Songs.
These work the same as other Ditloids: Take the first character from each word and eliminate the rest. What remains [and the given theme in the case of this series of Ditloids] is your clue as to what used to be there.
EG: 4. JB: This is Jingle Bells.
@aerospacemango: Still no prize: Sorry.

Someone needs to change the title of this thread.
Every time I see the word "Ditloids" I'm seeing something else (lets just say it begins with 'D', is 5 letters long and ends in 'O' )

So no Dido albums in your collection then?
