Had never heard your pick either, Kestrel. Really did enjoy it, however, reminded me of the land of Brexit...
I'm going to choose White Christmas by Bing Crosby. Brings back memories of my Mum & Dad.
I think White Christmas is the worlds best selling single ever....despite only being popular at one time a year !! Certain songs do tend to evoke treasured memories from our past.
Brexit? I think you're the first board member to mention it which clearly demonstrates the US (compared to the UK) bias of these boards.
I think she was just kidding around. She put a 😉 after it. It is probably a sore subject with most people in the U.K., whether for or against it.
I'm sure she was but its still very interesting to see the dreaded B word pop up on these boards after three years.
I was in England during the first Brexit vote. Surprised how Corbyn and Johnson suddenly departed and it was dumped into May's lap.

Another favorite Christmas song is Adeste Fideles, my first go at another language in my childhood choir.
