13 Songs for Yule

13 Songs for Yule December 19, 2010

The Winter Solstice is around the corner. Some of us have already celebrated Yule with our friends, family and faith community. This year we have a unique eclipse joining the Solstice to make for a magical night. For those of you celebrating alone you might consider watching the webcast of the solstice sunrise at Newgrange. Maybe you plan to watch Hogfather or Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People.

If you can listen to this without singing along you have more willpower than I!

This is a song about the evening I am about to have with an eclectic collection of family and friends.

11. Here Comes the Sun by George Harrison

It has been a long cold lonely winter but here comes the sun and I say “It’s all right!”
