It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas! Today’s musical accompaniment is courtesy of the voices from Aldersgate Methodist Church in Singapore, where we attended a Pre-Christmas Carolling programme this evening.
Afterwards, J commented that he loves singing the Christmas songs together with everyone, and that he would love to sing a Christmas carol every single day this season. Hearing him say that made me feel very happy.
By the way, the game that the kids are playing together is “Tak: A Beautiful Game“, which is an abstract strategy game inspired by one of our favourite book series (for grownups), The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. It’s a really versatile and elegant game which the Barn Owl and I really enjoy, along with J and Little E.
(Buyer’s note: We bought the Tak Tavern Pieces and Cloth Board from The Tinker’s Packs, where all proceeds are donated to Worldbuilders, a charity working to make a sustainable difference in the world.)
P.S. We are following the Advent calendar from Truth In The Tinsel this year!

This year, I’m really looking forward to the Christmas Weekend and all the games, music and storytelling that we’ve got planned over here in the Owls Well household!
If you are hosting or throwing a Christmas party this year, here is the Owls Well Christmas 2016 playlist, with all of my handpicked favourite videos from Youtube! I’ve tried to feature more local artistes this year too. This playlist is roughly an hour long, so it’s a good one to put in the background when everyone is eating their Christmas Dinner, or stick on for the kiddies to watch whilst everyone is busy with preparations!
P.S. If you are looking for a much longer playlist to encompass all of party time, check out the Owls Well Christmas 2013 Playlist here.
In our family, Christmas parties are always filled with music and singing and this is one of the reasons why I always look forward to the end of year festive season. Every year, we would always find ourselves gathered around the piano after dinner, singing all our favourite Christmas carols, songs and hymns together. I really hope that this family tradition will continue as my kids grow up.
If you are throwing a Christmas party this year, here’s the Owls Well Christmas 2013 playlist featuring our handpicked favourites from Youtube! It’s nearly two hours long, so you can just put the music on in the background in the dining room, screen it in your living room and let your guests be entertained by all the brilliant and beautiful music videos…or better yet, sing along to all the songs if you can!
