Happy Boxing Day! Today is also the Feast of St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, who was stoned to death for his faith in Jesus Christ. A friend of Mary’s told us that she and her brothers would commemorate the day by throwing walnuts at each other. Makes me laugh just thinking about it. I wish we knew about that back when I was, say, ten…
Today is also the start of our favorite week of the year. Christmas is over, and it’s too late in the year to worry about anything. Put everything off until the start of 2017, that’s what I’m going to do this week. Speaking of which, by the time the next one of these rolls around, it’ll be 2017, so Happy New Year!
I was going to run around and find videos appropriate to the New Year, but it would seem that YouTube user Lindsay Koski has already done that, putting together a video of ten great New Year’s songs from the Forties, Fifties, and Sixties. Some were television performances, and where the song didn’t come with a video, she provided one, and went to the trouble of identifying each song at the start of each video. Thank you, Lindsay! Enjoy!
Happy New Year, everyone! That’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for December 26, 2015.
