Seasonal observation and riddle for the music-theoretically inclined

Hi, everybody. For a few years now, I've maintained a little blog of little music-theoretical observations. If you are looking for a little puzzle to solve during winter break -- assuming and hoping you get at least a little break this winter -- my post this month has a little challenge that stems from a little thing I noticed about the four-note ostinato from "Carol of the Bells."

Happy December!
