As the holiday season comes to a close, the staff of the American Folklife Center wishes you all the best for the coming year. In this picture, we pose by the Christmas Tree in the Great Hall of the Library of Congress, with some of us still in the costumes we wore in the AFC Mummers Play, St. George and the Data Dragon. We’re having one last holiday-themed program today, a lecture by British folklorist Ian Russell on caroling traditions in England.  After that, we have another year of great programming in store, including many interesting blog posts here at Folklife Today.  For timely updates on these programs, please subscribe to our RSS feeds and our Facebook page. We thank you for joining us during the past few months, and invite you to keep coming back in the days to come!
