|Old Time Christmas Carolers (image from Insiders Passport to Norfolk, VA)|
In the past 6 years since we've lived in our house in the suburbs we've had one set of carolers come by. It was almost magical to hear some singing from outside. I couldn't believe it! There was also a friend of mine one year who organized neighborhood kids to carol around her block... but they didn't make it as far as our house.
I think it's a great tradition! I'm going to try to rally some troops (i.e., my kids and their cousins) on Christmas Eve to head out around the block for some fun this year. I hope they are as motivated as me!
Earlier this season, at an antique store, I spotted this great Christmas Carol song book below. It looks like it dates to the 1950's and was a handout from Security-First National Bank, advertising their Christmas Club savings fund. Below are a few sheets of it... perfect to print out and head out on your own caroling expedition!
