There must be some way to get some live musical entertainment. Let's ask around and see what we can do. I like the secular holiday music but would also like some children's folk songs. I have a children's folk song CD and DVD but would still like to try and find a live singer if possible. I know you like xmas songs... but I know you will agree that we want to be different than what is repeated endlessly on the radio each year. I think Ella Jenkins and Pete Seeger are great for kids.

Do we expect any kids at our Humanlight? Maybe we should check to see who is bringing kids, I don't think anyone in our group has young children.

I hope we have enough room at your place, Bill, you said we could use the back porch as well as inside, right?

As for a live singer, you could always ask Margie, but note that she is a person of faith, and she's usually busy on Sundays. I wonder if we could convince a church organist to play at our secular holiday event!

Regarding the online streaming holiday songs, the songs played on Xmas in Frisko are not usually heard on radio, and some of the songs are downright dirty. If I remember correctly, there's no religious content on this station.

Here are some links to give us some ideas of other things we can do:
