It's Solstice Time Again!





Time to celebrate Winter! As has become my personal tradition, here's the original promotional video for Jethro Tull's "Ring Out Solstice Bells":


And this year I'm including some seasonal carols with roots that go back before Christianity to the early northern European solstice celebrations: A medley of "Deck the Halls" and "Wassail, Wassail"; and "The Boar's Head Carol".




Celebrate the season!
