The 6th Day of Christmas: SFYS Aftermath - First the Singing

Sing for Your Supper was a gas, as attested to by the litter throughout the house, the quantity of recycling to be carried out and the giant turkey carcasse which even now is being rendered for stock (then to be transformed into enchilada sauce). Would you like to see pictures? Of course you would.

Many guests do in fact sing.

Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang...In the bleak midwinter...

There might be a soulful country tuneor an old folk standardwhich will cause people to remember that the last time you performed you did "Will the Circle be Unbroken" and everyone will want to sing.Maybe you'll do a cover of a Hannah Montana hit, complete with choreography.You might gather the family for a charming rendition of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"and get extra points for audience participation.But other entertainments are certainly encouraged. You might blow a blues harp,read your reflections for the year just passed,or tell an enthralling tale about the time your great uncle met Billy the Kid.You could juggle and in so doing unleash The Dog's inner Circus Performer, causing him to dance at your feet and wait for a ball to drop. You might read some moving Native American poetryor teach everyone to fold an origami star box.(This will definately earn you snaps for getting everyone involved).You might throw in a little bonus, such as Special Ed singing his own very particular version of "The 12 Days of Christmas". Hilarity will ensue.
But so long as you enter in, you will win the appreciation and applause of your hosts.

Tee! And yes, that's the Neighb singing about the bleak midwinter. It was bleak, until she got back home!

Oh, the maddening deliciousness of it all. LOVED the evening, the singing, the stories, the juggling, the oragami and even the Blue Hawaii. (But I still think TMK should keep his day job...) :)

Thanks for allowing us to participate in another magical year of SFYS!
