First Day Of Winter
From Plank Road Publishingby John Riggio
Here's a fun – and cross curricular – way to celebrate the start of the winter season. This song is upbeat, happy, and full of high energy. The melody line isn't too difficult, and the chorus has a memorable hook.
"First Day Of Winter" refers, of course, to the winter solstice. It's sung from the perspective of the northern hemisphere. To our friends in the southern hemisphere, you can easily change the lyrics and rhythms to fit where you live. (from Music K-8, Vol. 23, No. 2)
