The Feast of Stephen

We are the day after Christmas, which means we are... St Stepen's Day, of course. You can read a lot about it here. For me, it has a simple but essential meaning: it is the day to avoid Boxing Day.Other people remember it from the lyrics of Good King Wenceslas, a carol which I have decided to upload on this post. It is the third year in a row that I upload the carol on this blog. It is becoming a tradition on Vraie Fiction. So enjoy the day and the music, I hope the frost is not cruel but that it is snowy where you are.

Good King Wenceslas is one of my favourite carols! Another good modern song about December 26th is the St. Stephen's Day Massacre by The Chieftans. It's about being so sick of your relatives that by Boxing Day you'd gladly strangle them all.

Small correction -- the song is called St. Stephen's Day Murders. Check it out on YouTube!
