@JohnG , @SharonC , @ABitRusty , @Mark , @BillyG & @Katie L -
Really appreciated that you watched/listened!
This Party was the perfect opportunity for me to play around with 'switching gears' of tempo and keys, in both my videos. My task was made easier because, lets face it, some of these tunes we know from childhood.
The main thing I learned this year about music associated with the Christmas season is - there's much more to explore than I could possibly learn in my lifetime! So, I'm going to have to take time throughout the year to work on this music, instead of waiting until next December.
And, a special 'thank you' to SharonC!
I learned more about "Epiphany" because of this Party!
I knew it was the start of Carnival season, but I didn't realize what a HUGE holiday it is for Mexico, Puerto Rico and Spain. Maybe all of Latin America? Kids leave out a shoe & wish list and make a decorated basket to hold grass - in hopes of a gift exchange for an offering of food for the 3 Kings' animals. There are parades and a feast that includes the 'Rosca de Reyes' - like the New Orleans 'King Cake' of Mardi gras, only the person who finds the 'baby' doll in the cake "must host a party on 'Día de la Candelaria' in February".
The French celebrate with a “Galette des Rois” - an almond cream filled puff pastry. "Gâteau des Rois" or “Couronne des Rois” - a candied fruit topped brioche, may be more popular in Southern France? So, I imagine Epiphany must be a huge celebration in Québéc, also?
I never could've imagined all of the cool things
I would learn, besides music, when I joined this forum - so enjoyable!
Thank you all for being part of it!
...more Holidays = more Music!
