Subject: RE: Songs for the Winter Solstice
Anne,

" a representative from a family which, whatever your opinion of the matter might be, has preserved traditions for as many generations back as they can trace."


I think I have lost my way here. Their are somethings about "Christmas" that doesn't seem to have much to do with Jesus. I don't doubt that but 13 Centuries of Christianity seem to have rolled the pagans flat.

The water has been seriously muddied by more recent writers saying all kinds of things which have been repeated by people with vivid imaginations and little respect for scholarship.

This thread was about "Songs for the Winter Solstice" as far as I can tell none have come from the English tradition of songs.
