    I just wanted to recommend a Christmas book entitled: 4000 Years of Christmas. "It traces the customs that make Christmas Christmas" --NY Times

    I saw and read portions of this small book years ago at the NYC Public Library. It's a quick read at only 103 pages. Its author, Earl Count, died just a few years ago at the great old age of 97 years. --------- Merry Christmas to all......

    I knew sleigh bells were pagan! I just knew it! :D [​IMG] [​IMG] :rolleyes: :cool:

    [The above is a joke. Many here know I take an extreme stand concerning music and instruments (the right stand, of course ;) ) .]
