Worshipped with a Kiss

In the Bleak Midwinter, the words are by poet Christina Rossetti, is one of my favorite Christmas carols. This is a particularly lovely video, sung by the Gloucester Cathedral Choir.

Tidings of Chaos and Joy

Tonight we had our traditional Christmas Eve Seven Fishes feast. Sort of. Not really seven; but we’re not so good at counting yet. Bella only sometimes makes it to five.
