  4. @Chris,

    Thanks for the kind words! The artist is Martina McBride can’t remember the album it was on but I THINK it is a Christmas CD that was all her, not like one of those multi artist compilations but I am not sure on that. I will check when I get back and let you know.

  5. Wonderful sentiments Jack. People have always come together during the Solstice. Thus the persistent traditions we celebrate – gifts of food, warmth, community. Unfortunately, Jesus was born in April, so that is when there would have been the ‘silent, holy night’. Christmas is celebrated in December by order of a pope, in order to displace the Saturnalia/Yule celebration; then a President fixed the date at December 25th. Still, everything we do on December 25th is from the old traditions, unless you follow the political dictates of popes and presidents in rearranging reality.

    I hope everyone had a great Solstice!

    May there be peace on Earth.
