This is our Christmas wish to you for 2010
This is only a short episode with three pieces of music and a little story, but we thought it important to let you all know where we were with the show, what was and has been going on and that we are still here! We have had so much wonderful support and feedback over the last year that it has made our job of Gary getting better and Ruthie looking after him much easier.

by Willo's Song
Originally from Co. Antrim, N. Ireland now residing in beautiful Wiltshire, England, Willo's Song is the working title for a musical project involving singer/songwriter Daryl Ball and various other friends, family and musicians to have fun and make music that they enjoy.
A Christmas Favourite poem
All we're going to tell you about this little surprise, is that the original was written by Clement C. Moore. :)
The Magic of a Christmas Tree
by Judy Pancoast
This is a piece of innocent magic from Judy whose album, The House on Christmas Street and the title song of Judy’s family Christmas CD, "The House on Christmas Street," is a holiday hit which can be heard each Christmas season on radio stations across the country. She has also been featured on NPR's "Day to Day" and "Marketplace."
On Midwinter's Day
by Damh the Bard
We can do no better than finish the show with Damh singing us out with his superb track On Midwinter's Day. Damh is a modern-day Bard whose spirituality, and love of folk tradition, is expressed through his music, storytelling and poetry. Drawing on the Bardic traditions his performances are both entertaining and educational, weaving a tapestry of myth, peace, and anthems that speak directly to the heart, but never without a good splash of humour.
You can find out more about Damh on his website at Pagan Music or on our Contributor Page. You can find out more about the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids that he represents on their website at druidry.org.
We give the answer to our competition about the other name of the Book of Kells and reveal it to be the 'Book of Columba'. We can proudly announce that the winner from a tremendous entry is Scott McGovern - well done, Scott.
As we are moving to the Welsh stories, we thought we should say goodbye to you in Welsh rather than in Irish, so you will hear us wish you 'Hwyl fawr!', which means Goodbye and have fun, or more literally Wishing a Good Mood on you!
