Advent song for December 3: Shchedryk, Ukraine

One of the greatest Ukrainian carols eer composed–Schedryk. Enjoy and be inspired!

Glad All Over

This is really a New Year’s song, but it’s been adapted into English as the Carol of the Bells or the Ukranian Bell Carol, and is indelibly associated with Christmas over here and especially in the States where various English-language Christmassy versions exist (you may especially remember it from Home Alone, or that might just be me).

This isn’t the best video in the world, but it’s the most charming version musically, so I hope you forgive the shakiness. If not, you are allowed to cheat and watch the Muppets version instead.
