Wonderful. Your joy in music is infectious- thank you!

Are you familiar with the old Appalachian tradition called "quitting Christmas?"
I'm guessing you are referring to the tradition of house parties & music between Dec 25th and Old Christmas, yes? Sadly, I only know it second hand, though. If you have any personal stories to share, I'd love to hear 'em.
I've played "Breaking Up Christmas" -- same idea, different name -- for years. In fact, I may get a vid up soon if I have the time.
That was some nice ol' time dulcimer playing, Mark. Are you familiar with the old Appalachian tradition called "quitting Christmas?"
