Christmas songs can be exciting, but right now I don’t really want excitement. Calm would be good. I therefore offer you “Wind Through the Olive Tress,” which is a calm and pretty little song. It is said to be a setting of a traditional Gascon carol, which fits with the olive trees.

You can sing it to yourself, maybe excute a pas de basque or two, and feel serene even if you haven’t finished your Christmas presents or cleared your in-box.
