“The Angels were all singing out of tune, And hoarse with having little else to do, Excepting wind up the sun and moon Or curb a runaway young star or two.”
“I do like Chrtistmas on the whole … In its clumsy way, it does approach Peace and Goodwill. But it is clumsier every year.”
~E. M. Forster
Det satt en arg älg i julgranen i Göteborg. (An angry moose sat in the christmas tree in Gothenburg.)

Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmas Time is Here” is hands-down my favorite piece of Christmas music. It makes me happy and sad and wistful all at once, but mostly it just goes so perfectly with a fire in the hearth, a glass of wine, and presents to be wrapped. If all else fails, it also just goes with the glass of wine.
