A Christmas Carol...it's Time to Sing!
Carolers have been known to travel on foot, by truck or in a horsedrawn wagon...Close your eyes and listen for the bells. Imagine the snow falling softly in the cozy glow of evening. Expect the smell of evergreen. You've arrived at a place somewhere between your heart and soul: the world of Christmas songs.
If you are looking to get into the holiday spirit after finishing off the last of the Thanksgiving turkey, caroling might be just the thing. For the last three years, a group of neighbors of all ages and all abilities gather on the first Wednesday in December to carol their way up and down Dewey Ave. Stopping in businesses and singing a few songs on street corners, the singers brave cold temperatures and even snow to encourage the holiday spirit. With song books (just in case you don't remember all the verses for the Twelve Days of Christmas) and some professional musicians to keep everyone in key, the group sings anywhere their caroling is appreciated from Montana Market to Whitefish Credit Union. If you want to join in this year, meet at the corner of Glacier Bank at 4:00pm on December 3. Remember to dress warm. And don't worry if you aren't a Bing Crosby. Your voice will blend beautifully with the rest of the carolers.
Have a safe and happy Holiday Season and spread some cheer!
