This is the original Carol of the bells song.

LYRICS:

Hark! how the bells
sweet silver bells
All seem to say
throw cares away.

Christmas is here
bringing good cheer
To young and old
meek and the bold

Ding, dong, ding, dong
that is their song,
With joyful ring
all caroling

One seems to hear
words of good cheer
From everywhere
filling the air

O, how they pound
raising the sound
Oer hill and dale
telling their tale

Gaily they ring
while people sing
Songs of good cheer
christmas is here!
Merry, merry, merry, merry christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry christmas!

On, on they send
on without end
Their joyful tone
to every home

Hark! how the bells
sweet silver bells
All seem to say
throw cares away.

Christmas is here
bringing good cheer
To young and old
meek and the bold

Ding, dong, ding, dong
that is their song
With joyful ring
all caroling.

One seems to hear
words of good cheer
From everywhere
filling the air

O, how they pound
raising the sound
Oer hill and dale
telling their tale

Gaily they ring
while people sing
Songs of good cheer
christmas is here!
Merry, merry, merry, merry christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry christmas!

On, on they send

Dutch court orders Crimean treasure collection be sent back to Ukraine.

Hundreds of works of art from Crimea currently in the hands of the Allard Pierson museum in Amsterdam must be sent back to Ukraine, a court ruled on Wednesday.

The collection of gold and other treasures has been in the Netherlands since early 2014 when they were the center of a major exhibition at the archaeological museum.

While the exhibition was running, Russia annexed parts of the Crimea from Ukraine and the museum decided to hang on to the treasures while the row about where they should be sent back to was sorted out. The items came from five museums in Ukraine, four of which are now under the control of Russia and which want the treasures back. They took legal action to force the museum to hand back the treasures. Ukraine also demanded the return of the works and says they belong in Kiev. Court case The Allard Pierson museum decided to hold onto the treasures pending the outcome of the court case into the claims. The Netherlands does not recognize Russia’s annexation of Crimea. The court ruled that the treasures should be sent back to the sovereign state which loaned them to the museum, on the basis of a Unesco treaty. It also ordered Ukraine to pay the museum €100,000 towards the cost of looking after them. The exhibition, entitled The Crimea: Gold and Secrets from the Black Sea, included what the museum said are ‘spectacular archaeological finds’, including gold items, a scabbard and a ceremonial helmet, and countless precious gems. The objects will kept in Amsterdam for a further three months pending an appeal.
