TUESDAY’S TANTALIZING TUSHY – AND A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Don’t Forget To Fill Those Stockings

Silent Night In Irish Gaelic

On Christmas Eve, before the pandemic, myself and other members of the family would gather round a piano and sing Christmas songs and carols. It was not as picturesque as it might sound, as much alcohol would have been consumed by then. It was more like a bunch of wassailers who could not be bothered to go out, rather than the Victorian Christmas scene that you might imagine. I always sang Silent night in Flemish, not to show off but because I can never remember the words in English, when I have had a few too many. Here it is sung by Enya, in Irish Gaelic.

  3. Such a sweet story. Don’t worry, I, too, am familiar with the singing of carols after too much alcohol! I was church choir organist. And after midnight Mass where we did our best 4-part rendition of O Holy Night we would come back to mine for supper and *drinks* and after a few bottles were put away it sounded more like 8 part harmony. 😀

  4. love the Tuesday Tushy!! how do they get them high??? or was mine like that when I was MUCH younger too…

    I thoroughly enjoyed your story of Christmas eve carolling – I remember one year my mom was determined we would sing carols around the piano……… she practiced and practiced the music… and if it wasn’t for the “mom look” I don’t think anyone would have sung……… LOL it was the first year she tried and – the last!
