1. Anyone know the name/origin/lyrics of a probably English xmas-themed folk song with this chorus:

    Bring in the green bring in the green
    for it is our desire
    to celebrate the holiday
    with food and drink and fire

    Various google searchings reveal nothing, and I never got a copy of the lyrics.

  2. tradition.is was thoroughly enjoyable and filled with excellent music+dancing — met new friends, learned new tunes+dances+singing styles and generally had a good time. Longer blog post upcoming, for now here’s my post-festival :

    Not all necessarily related to the festival, but learned about in the duration. Amusingly, last.fm/music/BLM has a big photo of the BLM which performed at tradition.is, but is about someone completely different!
