Twas the Sunday before Christmas

This evening, we walked through the transformed Bishop Lucey Park then through the English Market, which is usually not open on Sundays. Within the Market, many stalls were closed or closing up since it was sunset, but as we approached the Princes Street side (we entered on Grand Parade) we heard singing. A large group of men stood on the second floor balcony of Farm Gate Cafe. It seemed to be a fundraiser for a local hospice organization though donations were welcome not required. They sang Christmas carols as well as some general songs with religious meaning, such as one I know from O Brother Where Art Thou. Even more caroling was enjoyed on St. Patrick’s Street. It brought a festive mood to the air and was fun to see the stores open after five o’clock on a Sunday.


Enough about me. What are you thinking?
