Apologies for the delay but I've been feeling ill. Thanks to all my readers on blogger, lj, and facebook for your support for this series, and even some suggestions! I've got a few more songs coming up later this week, but I wanted to post a couple new ones that I discovered through The Juggler.
"Santa's Pagan Too" by Emerald Rose.
I sometimes feel jaded by the trickery associated with parents performing as Santa. This song reminded me that Santa is really a spirit who can possess or inspire us to give. Sometimes his image, like so many, is used to excuse materialism - but I don't think that's really what he's about. Santa stands for generosity, fun, the magic of childhood, and good family memories. Still, I think I would go about the tradition differently should I ever have children of my own.
"The Solstice Song" by Finvarra’s Wren. A lovely folk song that looks forward to the spring, much as our ancestors would have done this time of year.
