♬ The Holly and the Ivy ♬

The holly and the ivy, when they are both full grown,
Of all the trees that are in the wood, the holly bears the crown.
Oh, the rising of the sun and the running of the deer,
The playing of the merry organ, sweet singing in the choir.

I had some fun this evening merging two photos: one of the holly growing outside a local vintner and one of our family creche. As an aside, yes, we include the baby Jesus before December 25th, although our minister holds the view that the baby should not appear until Christmas day. In any case, today's photo allows me to share one of my favourite carols from King's College Cambridge, epitomizing "sweet singing in the choir."
