Holiday Caroling Family Night

Everyone met at the library to pick up song sheets before we headed out to sing.  Having the words to the songs is important!

Here are a few well-known tunes that celebrate the season, rather than a specific holiday.

  • Let it Snow
  • Deck the Halls
  • Frosty the Snowman
  • Jingle Bells
  • The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
  • Here We Come a Caroling

One of the wonderful things about being an in-town library is that we could walk to nearby houses.  We planned ahead, and let the families know that we were coming at a certain time.  This worked out well because it kept us moving at a quick pace…no time for anyone to lose interest!

One of houses we visited even prepared us hot spiced cider!  It was a nice treat to keep us warm out in the cold.

After caroling, we headed back to the library to enjoy some homemade cookies and a do-it-yourself hot chocolate bar. (Prior to caroling, we made a large carafe of hot chocolate so that it would be ready to go when we got back.)

For the hot chocolate bar, we put out a carafe of hot chocolate & cups and spoons.  We also had a fun selection of toppings:

It was a fun night for all!  Happy Holidays!
