I just wanted to take a quick moment to wish all of my readers a Merry Christmas, Happy (Belated) Hanukkah, Festive Yule, and best wishes for every other holiday that I might be missing. I still feel so honored and touched to see my flag counter grow, adding another country to my list. (I’d still love to know more about you, my readers…feel free to leave comments!) No matter where you are, or who you are, I hope the joy and spirit of the season reaches you.
Albania will be giving us their customary Christmas gift in a few hours with the announcement of the winner of the 49th Festivali i Këngës, which has become their national preselection for Eurovision. As soon as it’s announced, I’ll pass along the news to you all! (And I know that I’m supposed to be impartial, but if you must know, I’m supporting Kamela Islamaj all the way! She rocked the FiK last year with Gjëra të thjeshta, and she’s following it up with more rock…I’d love to know more about her, so if anyone from Albania or Kosovo has more information on her biography or singing career, please share it with us! Any album out, possibly?)
