Christmases Long, Long Ago

child's christmas in walesBefore I succumb to the charms of the season I'd like to call your attention to the Youtube video below, "A Child's Christmas in Wales", (part one) written and, in this case, read by the remarkable Dylan Thomas. This prose-poem describes one young boy's Christmas from a time long before the transistor was a gleam in anypne's eye. It's charming, at times wickedly funny but always thoroughly enchanting.

What I enjoy most about the story is that it's all about the process of celebrating Christmas without any of the religious backwash getting in the way. It's one long, delightful, historical list of "how-to" but without the guilt.

So dim the lights, sit back in a comfy chair and let Mr. Thomas' sonorous voice swaddle you in a little seasonal magic.

Well, that's it for me. Beloved Girlfriend and I have a date tonight in front of a fire, watching "The Muppet Christmas Carol" and stuffing ourselves with Xmas goodies.

So have yourself a fabulous little Winter's Solstice, everyone, and I'll see you on Monday.
