Winner: American Library Association Notable Children's Recording
This beautiful, frisky, and sweetly melodic recording focuses on that mystical time when Christian celebration mingled with the older pagan rituals of winter solstice. Spanning centuries and cultures, from England to Finland, Wales to Ireland, Cornwall to Early America, it is chocked up with cheerful visiting songs that brought neighbors together, jolly old ballads, and tender carols with which families have huddled in song for countless generations.
