'Nollaig Shona Duit', Happy Christmas to You!

You may have spent the last few weeks rushing to and fro, perhaps buying gifts or making plans, volunteering or collecting food and clothing for the poor, in preparation for the holiday season. As Christmas Day draws near, some of you may be surrounded by friends and family, while others may be alone, and to each one of you I wish for you a holiday season filled with joy in whatever form it may come.

Below I have posted 'Nollaig Shona Duit', Happy Christmas to You!, a musical journey through photographs of my wonderful Irish family across time. Originally created in 2011, I put together images — some sepia, some black and white, some colour — along with my favourite rendition of 'The Wexford Carol', a very beautiful and traditional Irish Christmas carol, which is said to have originated in 12th century County Wexford, Ireland.  Alison Krauss sings the lyrics, accompanied by Yo-Yo Ma on cello and Natalie McMaster on violin. So, turn up the sound on your speakers, enjoy the music, and know I am...

Wishing you and yours all the joys and blessings of the holiday season! 
Happy Christmas to All!
