Christmas is coming but not quite yet!

Yesterday was the Third Sunday in Advent (the one when the pink candle gets lit on the Advent Wreath. The pink colour signifys a bit of a rest from the rigours of Advent, although considering the amount of partying we all do perhaps it would be better signifying a bit of time out from the round of social events? The third Sunday is also known as 'Gaudate Sunday' or the Sunday of rejoicing from the introit set for the day. My favourite singing of 'Gaudate' is by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band - do a web search for it.
