One of my favorite things about Christmas is all of the music, favorites from my childhood, both about the Christ Child and fun ones from our popular culture like Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph and others.

Enjoy this illustrated version of Silent Night with some of our talented work by our TAFA members. Click on the video for vocals by the talented Sam Tsui accompanied on the violin by Yasmeen Al-Mazeedi and then scroll down to see the lyrics and images.

Silent night, holy night!

Wishing you and yours a meaningful and beautiful Christmas!

If you do not celebrate Christmas, may this time also be filled with love and joy!

About

I've been working with the arts and craft world in many capacities since 1988. Handmade textiles have been my core focus since launching TAFA in 2010.

My hope is to contribute to the economic development potential the arts bring to the world, along with the intrinsic beauty shown in the work. May the world become a friendlier place for artists and nature!

Arrived in Kentucky after a childhood in Brazil, college in Minnesota and 20 years in Chicago. It's been a ride!
