happy friday [AL+LA]

[caron here] Ukrainian Bells  Carol of the Bells (eng. version), is my absolute favorite carol. originally composed by Mykola Leontovych, this song was inspired by a folk chant known as Shchedryk, translating in English to “bountiful”. i love Pink Martini’s version on their Joy to the World album and have been listening to it all season. turn up the volume and listen here.
