This Spanish Difficult Review quiz will take a look at music, specifically, the song of Over the River and Through the Woods! Some of you may be familiar with this song and others may not be. It is a song that is often sung around Thanksgiving time in the United States. It was originally a poem written by Lydia Maria Child in 1844. The original song/poem about a journey through the woods to visit grandparents for the Thanksgiving holiday contained twelve verses. However, over the decades three of those verses became the most recognizable. This music quiz will focus on the three most famous verses.
