Blog Caroling - The Carol of the Bells

My Christmas this year is filled with bells, and the carols playing are no different. The Carol of the Bells is based on a Ukrainian song and was adapted by Peter Wilhousky, who lived down the street from me when I was a child. He was long retired by that time, but it was a thrill to know he created the carol we were singing. 

The lyrics are layered - the carol is sung in under two minutes. But it is tremendous, tremendous fun. 

Blog Caroling is an annual tradition started by Footnote Maven. It is a joy to participate again this year.
