December!!! (again)

That’s a very cute PostSecret, although I can’t relate.

My month of Christmas music began just fifteen minutes after the official start of December, as I was leaving a research interview just after midnight. I started with Tori Amos’ version of "Have yourself a merry little Christmas." That’s one of my favorite Christmas songs, and she’s my favorite artist, so I obviously like her version. And it was fitting for a solitary walk to the bus on a quiet Monday night in Oslo.

As I write this, I am listening to her "Midwinter Graces" album for the first time – and I think I love it already, which really shouldn’t surprise anyone.

I like starting traditions. Someone suggested to me the other day that I am living a kind of "Groundhog Year", in which I repeat the same actions every twelve months. Not true! But I have decided to do like last year and promise that…

… this blog will be updated every day of December.

Consider it a combined advent and countdown to the end of the decade.

Listen to Tori Amos’ "Have yourself a merry little Christmas" on YouTube. "Midwinter Graces" is available on Spotify.
