Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s

Nothing happens on Christmas Day, 25th December, in Britain, nor for that matter in much of the world. From the afternoon of Christmas Eve onward, the country starts to batten down hatches and pull up drawbridges. One of the most recognizable signs that this moment has come is the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College, Cambridge, broadcast every year at around six o’clock. Here is the 2011 service (they don’t vary all that much – especially with regard to the first carol).

Oh, and Merry Christmas.
