Anonymous in Llanllyfni, Wales - December, the 1900's

from The Plygain Carols, page 10:

What a thrill it was to attend the parish church at Llanllyfni for the carol service at five o’ clock in the morning! We tramped there in crowds, all denominational pride gone and all arguments forgotten. Were we not on the way to Bethlehem? I remember the shadows lingering in the corners of the old church, and the sons of the sexton singing like the angels of God.
