ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I was reading about the history of Christmas, and how so many of the holiday traditions we enjoy bear an uncanny resemblance to the pre-Christian rituals of pagan Europe and ancient Egypt, all of which centered around the Winter Solstice. As Christianity spread, it subsumed these rituals into Christmas celebrations. A neat trick – it allowed people to keep their holiday traditions after they converted.

So this anthem for the Winter Solstice returns the favor. I think of it as a reverse appropriation, since it’s a song for the old pagan holiday, but in the style of all those Christmas pop singles I heard on the radio every winter when I was growing up. I hope you like it. Happy holidays from Frequent Small Meals! -- Andy Ditzler, Atlanta, October 2008
