Sounds of winter: day 25

Fairy tale of New York. This is the official version of the Pogue’s song. (Not the BBC’s edited one.)

The boys of the NYPD choir

Were singing ‘Galway Bay’

And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas Day

Happy Christmas everyone!

The pawprints are by nomnomicons. They remind me of Elizabeth Coatsworth’s poem On a Night of Snow : https://www.poetrybyheart.org.uk/poems/on-a-night-of-snow/

It’s an odd kind of white Christmas here – heavy frost but no snow. Pretty, but extremely cold!

  1. This is one of my all-time favourite Christmas songs, both for the unconventional (to say the least!) lyrics and for the wonderful harmonies. The fact that the Pogues’ lead singer was apparently 3 sheets to the wind when he sang this version adds a little extra… spice to the mix. 😉
