ggaar is finally teaching abroad and being reunited with his soul mate.
I love to sing carols with friends and drink hot chocolate while making, baking, and consuming (piping hot) cakes, tarts, biscuits , and cookies. I would love to share with both of you, my favorite carols. :)
My favorite carol, The Boar’s Head Carol, 15th century and still wonderful to this day!
Carol of the Bells, one of the most beautiful uses of the human voice. :)
Not a great version but you get the idea. :)
O Tannenbaum, from my German heritage and in honor of my oma who has passed. I miss her dearly.
Oh and this is the Royal Guardsmen (a British rock group) that did a fantastic Christmas song about Snoopy and the Red Baron. :)
One of my new favorite holiday albums, Bare Naked Ladies did an album called Bare Naked for the Holidays. Had some really, really impressive versions of Christmas classics. Here are two of my favorite songs from that album.

One of my favorite bands did a great song from a classic children’s special called Heat Miser, performed by the Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
Enjoy these, and please, if you find me with a cup of hot chocolate, getting ready to sing, feel free to join me! :)
