Pure Holiday Magic
... or what I got for Christmas.
The Esenberg Family (perhaps joining the ranks of the Carter Family) has released some seasonal music. You can hear it here. Listen to my daughter-in-law turn a little clay toy into an object of an ominous obsession. "And when my dreidel's tired/It drops and then I win" sounds as if she killed it. Hear my son's rather dark version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman. (Actually the original meaning - God keep you strong - is a bit less frothy than our current understanding.)
Little Aidan's reading of Rudolph is, however, more traditional.
