Round and round we go
If your singing skills are at the let’s-all-sing-the-melody level but you’d like to get a bit of harmony going, then rounds are the answer for you. I propose “Christmas Is Coming” and “Christmas Bells” but see what else you can find.
You can practise them early in December and go a-carolling, you can practise them in mid-December and sing them in your Christmas concert or you can get everyone together on Christmas afternoon, learn the song together and bash it out.
(It’s 6 months till Christmas… so if you’re feeling half-ready, well done!)
I enlisted Jeremy to work out how to transport Jack’s present to Wendy’s place and he suggested Hannah’s friend Lachlan who has a ute (which was a hand-me-down from his farming family and, apparently, it makes him quite popular in the city).
 And the goose is getting fat. This may be a song of pleasant anticipation for humans, but it doesn’t bode well for poultry.
 My brother-in-law Don bashes out carols out literally on the bongos. (He doesn’t sing at all so we assign him to percussion.)
 Jeremy thinks the magic machine is cool, which gave me some comfort when I woke up in the middle of the night and thought, “What have I done?”
