Special Edition: Gaudium Mundo

LATIN HOLIDAY SONGS. As some of you may know, I have a blog full of Latin holiday songs: Gaudium Mundo. There are some traditional Latin hymns, some English carols translated into Latin, and also some Polish carols translated into Latin. I'll be featuring a "song of the day" in the Bestiaria posts for December starting tomorrow, December 1, but I wanted to go ahead and put the whole calendar for the month here today.

SONG WIDGET. If you are interested in having a Latin song in your own blog sidebar, you can grab a widget to use, either 200 pixels wide or 400 pixels wide. The widget will work anywhere that javascript is accepted, so it works great in Blogger blogs, in self-hosted WordPress (but not in free WordPress.com hosted blogs), in PBWorks.com websites (but not in Google Sites)... just check to see if "javascript" is allowed. I host the script, so you don't have to do that, but your web environment needs to be javascript-friendly.
