    Nikam! I hope that you and your loved ones have a wonderful holiday together.

    However, there is a new Christmas music that gets on my nerves.
    Welland City Hall must have paid a son or daughter of a city councilor to provide Christmas music.
    Played through speakers around the outside of City Hall, you can hear it in the library.
    It sounds like an inexpensive synthesizer sound of a bell, with the songs played just one note at a time.
    And believe me, when you're hearing songs you grew up with being sung by choirs or vocalists and orchestra,
    when you hear one wavering bell playing melodies note by note you notice it.

    Maybe it was hearing this every time I was at the library that made me susceptible,
    to this snarky, lyrical update of this Christmas classic.

    Thanks, Nikam - I hope you are having a good Christmas up in Scotland.

    Here's a favourite of mine, a wassail sung by the Yorkshire group The Watersons.
