Whether you are part of a choir that thunders the Hallelujah Chorus from a parade float or just a few merry amateurs warbling Jingle Bells, go out tonight and make a joyful noise. Even if you just go down to the end of the block, the chill air, the stage fright and the giddy excitement will make it an excursion your kids will talk about for years.
Warm up afterwards with some hot chocolate. Who knows? Maybe the neighbors will invite you in for some figgy pudding - whatever that is!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.
