Here’s a little song called Carol of St. Benjamin the Bearded One¬†from¬†Sufjan Stevens to conjure up some holiday cheer this grey afternoon. He sings:

I can see you there
Oh, in the snowbank
With a snowman at your side
In my heart and in my spirit I concede
The things you want in life you have to really need


Our hearts go out to all the families impacted by the shooting in Connecticut this morning.
