It’s the Seventh Day of Christmas, also known as New Year’s Eve in the Western calendar! We are just over halfway through Christmas now.
Today’s resources include one of my favourite hipster Christmas albums by the Californian band Branches. There are two beautiful poems: a new poem by Lauren Smith and the classic Bleak Mid-winter of Christina Rossetti, so evocative and yet also so foreign for those of us celebrating Christmas in the height of summer. There is a recipe for making ice cream out of fruit if that will help to cool you down.
