Merry Christmas from all of us at Mockingbird! And thank you everyone for making this such a fun year to be online. We are encouraged and we hope you are too. But just in case you need a little extra comfort and joy to get through the week, here’s the immortal fourth verse of “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear” and a clip from Will Vinton’s Claymation Christmas Special:

O ye, beneath life’s crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow,
Look now, for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing.
O rest beside the weary road,
And hear the angels sing!


Stay tuned for more year-end lists…
