Because we are the Feast of Stephen and that I strongly dislike the Boxing Day everybody is mad about today, I am uploading again Good King Wenceslas. It is also a Christmas tradition on Vraie Fiction and you know how much I love to keep my blogging traditions. To accompany the song, I have uploaded a picture that my brother PJ took in Prague. It is a portrait statue of the real King Wenceslas, the historical figure that inspired the fictitious character of the carol. I have not much to add, apart that I find ironic that today is for too many people about getting a good deal and consuming, while the legend of King Wenceslas is about generosity and compassion.
