The X-mas Carols is a fantastic initiative that I am happy to be a part of.
As you will have seen, the Christmas countdown that I have entered on the side today marks 23 days, but starting from 8 December you will find a real Advent Calendar.
I report the exact description with which Shio illustrates her idea on the blog The World of Shio Ren:
As you can obviously imagine, I was inspired by the famous “Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens for the name and, in this special case, the “carols” are represented by the work of all those who have trusted me and joined me me in this project.
The Xmas carols, is a sort of virtual advent calendar where, every day, a blogger will host another’s carol on his blog: many small carols created through writing, drawing and poetry which, united, will give life to a symbolic Christmas choir sung by all the participants for all of you who follow us year after year with great affection.
Anyone who has known me for the longest time knows how fond I am of the Advent Calendars, indeed, I would take the opportunity to make my annual appeal pass here too: feel free to share the photos of your calendars and indulge yourself.
This one by Shio is really special because it represents the union of everyone’s Art.
In my case, art is too big a word, but the enthusiasm is authentic and sincere.
As for “A Christmas Carol,” how many times have you read or seen it? What’s your favorite version?
“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good-humour” wrote Charles Dickens in A Christmas Carol.
