Every year I do a Xmas or Yule Winter Special... this year I not the time to make a video but at least I finished this little song that It is a bit sad but hopeful and is dedicated especially to those facing struggle or loneliness during the Xmas Season. Today is Yule, Winter Solstice,so now on, even if Winter is bitter cold, days will be long.
Song is free to download but I am grateful if you take ONE minute to leave feedback here and on my youtube channel
The Wheel of the Year
Yule or Yuletide is also the pagan name given to Winter's solstice and its celebration, and the promise of light it brings has been celebrated since ancient times. That's why we holy and evergreen trees are linked with these holidays, because their evergreen is a promise of future growth.
Last year I did a series of Christmas Origins and legends and explained that holly is related to these winter festivities as a token of life, something that is evergreen when the branches go bare and naked. That's why I chose it in the cover as a symbol of hope and future
With this Christmas carol I want to wish everyone a blessed Yule, Merry Xmas (or whatever you celebrate) and a happy closing of the year... This is a public post and open for everyone. This year our Christmas special is an original theme called "Something that feels like home"
Still if you are a visitor and not a patron and still want to support you can purchase the download from bandcamp as symbolic support
Sometimes Christmas also stirs sorrow, loneliness, the winter blizzards rage so cold... but remember the shortest night is also the moment the light starts to return... I hope everyone enjoys thing but it is particularly dedicated to those ones that are more lonely or sadder, it's a present that I hope brings you comfort. Thus, it's not the most joyful of Christmas songs but I hope one FULL OF HOPE and warmth. A solace, a shelter in the middle of the cold winter nights.
Holly is evergreen... a promise that things will regrow after the start bare Winter... If you are facing struggles, if you are alone, or sad... hold on to something, something "evergreen" something that will keep your spirit warm, a small dream, a new hope... and hold on to it as a treasure...
Poem/Lyrics: Something that feels like Home
Let me gift you this song
something that feels like home
As the year ends
Let us go back to the essence
and ask ourselves
what do we really want?
A hope that trascends
is just a warmth
It's a presence
Something that feels like home
Even when you are alone
As the year ends
Let us all count our blessings
The shortest night marks when the light returns
A hope once reborn
becomes the greatest of presents
It's something that feels like home
Even when you're all alone
Let cold winds blow
I'll keep you safe from the storm
