I think we're probably all agreed on the following:

1. Oh, member of the round table with missing areas.

Oh, Holy night!

2. Boulder of the tinkling metal spheres.

Jingle Bell Rock

3. Vehicular homicide was committed on Dad's mom by
a precipitous darling.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer (no, never heard of it either)

4. Wanted in December: top forward incisors.

All I want for christmas is my two front teeth

6. The lad is a diminutive percussionist.

The Little Drummer Boy

7. Sir Lancelot with laryngitis.

Silent Night

8. Decorate the entryways.

Deck The Halls

11. Far off in a haybin.

Away In A Manger

15. Our fervent hope is that you thoroughly enjoy your Yuletide
season.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

16. Listen, the winged heavenly messengers are proclaiming
tunefully.

Hark, the herald angels sing

19. Jubilation to the entire terrestrial globe.

Joy To the World

24. Quadruped with Crimson Proboscis

Rudolph the red nosed Reindeer

Here's my shot at some of the rest:

9. Cup-shaped instruments fashioned of a whitish metallic
element.

Silver Bells

10. Oh small Israel urban centre.

O Little Town of Bethlehem

12. We are Kong, Lear, and Elvis.

We Three Kings

13. Duodecimal enumeration of the passage of the Yuletide
season.

The Twelve Days Of Christmas

14. Leave and broadcast from an elevation.

Go, Tell It On The Mountain

17. As the guardians of the woolly animals protected their
charges in the dark hours.

While Shepherds Washed Their Socks By Night

18. I beheld a trio of nautical vessels moving in this direction.

I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In

20. Do you perceive the same vibrations, which stimulate my
auditory sense organ?

Do You Hear What I Hear?

22. Parent was observed osculating a red-coated unshaven teamster.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

23. May the Deity bestow an absence of fatigue to mild
male humans.

God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen

Which leaves me stuck on these:

5. The apartment of two psychiatrists.

21. A joyful song of reverence relative to hollow metallic vessels,
which vibrate and bring forth a ringing sound when struck.


Any idea?

Perhaps number 21 is "Carol of the Bells"? although it doesn't exactly fit, it might be close enough?
