What, no story about “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”—!!
You know, God Rest Ye Merry GentleFOLKS is not in the running because just maybe it refers to White Men, don’tcha know? And you have to change it to Gentle People or Folks or something, and then the rhythm is off./s
Somewhere through the decades, the comma got lost. The song is properly titled, “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen.” One of my favorites as it’s one of the first tunes I learned for the flute.
