here's a pretty cool version of Good King Wenceslas as performed by the always wonderful Sufjan Stevens!

and here's the full lyrics to the song, if you're wondering:

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring winter fuel

"Hither, page, and stand by me
If thou know'st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a good league hence
Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By Saint Agnes' fountain."

"Bring me flesh and bring me wine
Bring me pine logs hither
Thou and I will see him dine
When we bear him thither."
Page and monarch forth they went
Forth they went together
Through the rude wind's wild lament
And the bitter weather

"Sire, the night is darker now
And the wind blows stronger
Fails my heart, I know not how,
I can go no longer."
"Mark my footsteps, my good page
Tread thou in them boldly
Thou shalt find the winter's rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly."

In his master's steps he trod
Where the snow lay dinted
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed
Therefore, Christian men, be sure
Wealth or rank possessing
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing

i don't really get how a person could not like Christmas music. i guess maybe if you don't celebrate Christmas? i dunno. i mean, a lot of what i classify as Christmas music is really holiday music or Santa music or winter music or songs that mention or allude to winter or cold weather. i'm really quite lenient when it comes to defining "Christmas music."

also i wouldn't actually do anything to you if i found ut you don't like Christmas music, i'd probably just be kind of confused.

the last of the That Thing You Do story arc. seriously, if you haven't seen TTYD, i totally recommend it. also Quarantine was pretty good, and if you like foreign movies you might want to watch REC, the Spanish movie that Quarantine was based on. it was good as well.
