Deck the Halls. I have to follow the Tom Lehrer with its reference to decking the halls, with the traditional Deck the Halls as sung beautifully by the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus. There is no apparent religious significance to the song though Yule is mentioned.

The photograph is obviously of a misericord but I can’t remember whether it was in Chester Cathedral or Beverley Minster. My photographs are in disarray… This jolly little mediaeval chap is clearly celebrating one season or another – all the year round.
