Day 1: Edith Piaf – Le noel de la rue

Day 1 – Edith Piaf – Le noel de la rue

And so it begins…my foreign-language musical countdown to Christmas! We start with a very sad and rather pertinent song today, which shows how the joy of Christmas is only for some people, and definitely not for those who live on the streets.

Christmas of the street
It’s snow and wind
And the wind from the street
Makes children cry
Light and joy
Behind the windows
Neither for you nor for me

Something to think about…maybe dig out those hats and scarves you don’t use anymore, collect some tins of food and whatever you can afford, and support your local charities. Make a difference 🙂
