Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2015! (Vol. 5, No. 14)
May the blessing of light be on you—
light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine on you
and warm your heart
till it glows like a great peat fire.
Not that we now know what "a great peat fire" is - as we are not Irish and live in the 21st century...
But, whether we know what we are doing, or not, we will "muddle through somehow...."
to quote another great song... so...
Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
And once you do, enjoy some Christmas carols, in Polish and English

v=_-OXruY5Gx8 (Lulajze Jezuniu - Anna German)
