Rhymes With Fuchsia

Sunday, December 07, 2008


Last week I did the Christmas questionnaire. I had a lot of fun answering all the questions, including the one about songs, but...

I forgot this one.

I think I forgot because it's not really a religious song — it mentions God only in the name of a carol, and it doesn't promote any religious agenda — but it's surely not a pop song either. Go listen to it and tell me what you think. It's fairly long, almost seven minutes, but you can knit while you're listening. (If you're a big goop like me you may want to have a tissue handy.)

In case you're wondering, the song takes some poetic license, but the basic story is true.


  • I saw 'Joyeaux Noel' a couple years ago which is a movie based on these facts as well. It was a fantastic movie but bad for knitting due to subtitles. Well worth watching though. Bring your tissues.

  • Even the Snopes article is enough to make me bawl.

  • Bravo! Thanks for sharing that. Wonder if anything like that could happen today?
