Welcome to Day 22 of the Virtual Advent Tour!

One of my favorite Christmas albums and my favorite Christmas season concert came last year from Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings. She knew when we saw her last December that her pancreatic cancer was not treatable, but despite being sick she swore she’d go down singing because what else was there? She died this fall, but not before work had begun on this stop-animation of one of her holiday covers:

We had a vacant spot for today’s antepenultimate stop in the Virtual Advent Tour that yesterday afternoon Cindy of Cindy’s Love of Books offered to fill. I joyfully accepted her offer and look forward to reading what she has to say about the holidays. I’ll update this post when I log back in later today.

Thank you, Cindy, for jumping into the fray at the very last minute and for taking part in the Virtual Advent Tour after a couple years away! Welcome back!

Check back here tomorrow for the penultimate stop on the Virtual Advent Tour.
