Thank you Dear Readers for your visits and comments throughout the year.
I love and appreciate every one of them, and feel blessed by the friendships and connections made with other bloggers throughout the world.

Night of Silence/Silent Night - a carol arrangement I have enjoyed singing with several choirs.  It is wonderful when the two melodies intertwine at the end!
I hope you enjoy it too.

Wishing you and yours a Peaceful, Joyful and Very Happy Christmas

From Patricia, the Red Cardinal.

  5. Hi Tricia,

    "Silent Night" always brings tears to my mother's eyes because it reminds her of her mother. It's a German carol, and mom grew up in Bavaria. This choir sounds spectacular!

    Merry Christmas!

    Your American friend and fellow blogger,


  6. Merry Christmas, Patricia. What a beautiful carol - and the choir look so lovely as well. Something to be said for lovely costuming, things are just too casual nowadays. Looking forward to reading your lovely Arty blog next year - it's lovely to have your friendship - I certainly did not realise when I started blogging that I would actually meet bloggers, but I have now met two - one from overseas, and one when I was overseas. I guess we are all similar people, in many respects.

  7. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Have a wonderful time.

  8. And you have a merry Christmas and a successful and happy 2016!
