Physics Christmas Carols

December 24, 2010 Leave a comment

Continuing with the Christmas theme of recent posts, I stumbled upon this awesome little collection of Christmas Carols re-written with physics-related lyrics. Pure gold!

My favourite: Phrosty the Photon (sung to Frosty the Snowman)

Phrosty the Photon was quite a quantum sight,

with a zero mass and an endless life,

and a speed approaching light.

There must have been some magic in a physics lab one year,

for when they studied X-ray beams

ole Phrosty did appear, Ohhhhhh,

Phrosty the Photon says he knows he’s not that large,

but he said one day if he comes this way,

he’ll give us all a charge.

Thumpity thump thump, thumpity thump thump, moving fast as light.

Thumpity thump thump thumpity thump thump, Phrosty’s out of sight!!
