Getting in the mood
My five-year-old and I went to a performance of Odds Bodkin this evening http://www.oddsbodkin.com/. It was a lovely way to get in the Christmas mood. He is indeed a fabulous storyteller, and he plays a guitar or a harp the whole time which adds so much to the mood. It was a small crowd, but in a beautiful and familiar space with perfect soft lighting and an audience full of friends. I felt cradled in warmth and goodwill, and the true spirit of Christmas. If you have the chance to see him, I highly recommend it. It was a bit old for my five-year-old, but he made it through the performance. It would be perfect for a slightly older child who enjoys tales of times past.
