advent: day 9
posted by soe 2:49 am

Today’s Virtual Advent Tour stop will be at heidenkind’s Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Books. Heidenkind shares her favorite series you can stream at home during the holidays (or at any other point of the year). This is particularly timely for the knitters who are desperately trying to finish up their holiday gifts and anyone looking for something without a specific holiday theme to watch while wrapping gifts or addressing cards.

But first, I have another Christmas song for you. “American Noel” was written by Dave Carter and recorded by him and Tracy Grammer and is the title track off their 1998 holiday album, released by Tracy six years after Dave’s sudden and early death. Dave’s music often combined themes of spirituality and social justice wrapped in vivid storytelling. If you like this song, I highly recommend you track down more of their music.

Finally, a quick reminder that it’s not too late to sign up for a spot in the tour. Dec. 10-12 remain open, as does Dec. 14-19. I’ll be writing for all those dates that don’t get claimed.
