Simple Christmas idea #23 -- Go carolling

Sing we now of Christmas...

That's what a group of us will be doing this evening for a short time because it's blooming cold out there!  A friend of ours has always wanted a "Christmas Carol" sing song, so we'll carol around our neighbourhood until feet get too cold. We might make a brief stop at the local Senior's Extendicare facility, and hope to sing for a few neighbours who might be at home. Then it's back to our house for cookies, hot chocolate and conversation.

Carolling is another one of those activities that just needs someone to say, "Let's do it." It's a way of bringing Christmas cheer to our neighbours during these darkest days of the year... but I fully expect it brings more cheer to us as individuals.

Sing we joyous all together, fa la la, la la la, la la la
Heedless of the wind and weather, fa la la la la, la la la la...

Thanks, Su! Merry Christmas to you, too. It was a pretty chilly night for carolling, that's for sure! We sang to our neighbours and were home to thaw our feet and drink mulled cider and hot chocolate within 40 minutes!
