Blog Caroling with footnoteMaven



It's that time again — the last few days before Christmas when footnoteMaven leads the Geneablogging community in Christmas Carols!

I highly recommend listening to a steel drum band play Christmas carols while you're stretched out on a lounger in the sun (or the shade). Here's a little peak at what that was like — without the lounger and the sun and the ship.
