Music is one of the best ways to lift your spirits. You knew we were eventually going to go here didn’t you?
Day 10 1/2 – Caroling – We hesitate to suggest this as a way to lift your mood on the off-chance you might ask one of us to sing. Be forewarned, this would be a terrible mistake.
In MB’s childhood home, Holiday Sing-along with Mitch was big. We often watched the Mitch Miller Show and sang along to the bouncing red ball. The thing is we didn’t sing well. We had a lot of fun though.
Must Be Santa was a big hit with us, even today we all sing along when we hear it.
For our children, it was the Muppets Christmas with John Denver or Disney Sing Along
Caroling with family is a great deal of fun. Be forgiving of those who can’t necessarily carry a tune but wish to take part, encourage those that can sing to lead and let your music ring out.
As our children matured, their tastes in carols changed a bit. And they cringed a lot when their parents sang-along.
If you really can’t bring yourself to sing in a group, then go to one of the free caroling events in your area. Karaoke anyone? Whether you Sing, Hum or Lip Sync, try caroling to keep the merry in Christmas this year.
