Happy Christmas!

" He is born - the divine child." This is one version of the translation:
"Born on earth the divine Christ child
Oboes rejoice with bagpipes vying
Born on earth the divine Christ child
Sing to welcome the savior mild
Ah such beauty and charm adore!
Ah such perfection of grace undying
Ah such beauty and charm adore!
Promised us of days of yore."

Have a blessed Christmas, everyone, and enjoy this French carol here if you have time.

Thanks for all your good wishes - we are indeed safely in Somerset, and four generations will be sharing the Christmas meal together tomorrow! I can't share photos from this borrowed computer, but will blog a bit more once I get to Edinburgh after Christmas.
