The bible says that the angels sang to the shepherd and after seeing the baby Jesus the shepherd sang in jubilee as well. Why not take your family and group and do some Christmas caroling. After all it is the season to be happy and share our joy. No better way to do that than through a song.
Here are a few tips to help you plan your family caroling night.
Choose where you will carol. Select a few families to go visit or perhaps you have a nursing home or elder home in your area. The one that I work out always welcomes visits. Our resident love them and its fun for all. Perhaps that is a choice that would work for you. It is best to ask the facility if it would be ok to come and carol first.
Make sure that you provide a list of carols that you will be singing so everyone in group knows the words as well as what songs you are singing. You can find some great songs at caroling song book.
Be sure to dress for the weather If it is col outside then make sure everyone brings their hats, gloves, and scarves.
Caroling can be hard work so be sure to provide refreshments to all those caroling. Good bowl of warm soup or chili and big mugs of warm drinks are always welcome after caroling. After warming up you can finish the night off with a sweet or two here are couple of delicious recipes you may want to share with your caroling friends
