Caroling in Washington Park

washington park moses backlitIf your holidays have been missing caroling, you're in luck. A group is getting together in Albany's Washington Park tomorrow to help spread some holiday cheer:

On Wednesday December 22nd, at 6:00 we will be meeting in Washington Park in Albany, by the fountain. From there we will follow a route and spread some holiday cheer with our chorus of song. Included is a link to a google doc for the PDF of the song lyrics. Print it out, dress up warm, and come on out!
Invite everyone you know, the more the Merrier!

(Thanks, Marcie and everyone!)

Bonus random caroling fact: The term "wassailing" refers to both the 16th century practice of carolers singing for Christmas treats (figgy pudding, for example) -- and singing to apple orchards with the aim of helping the trees thrive. [Wikipedia]

Oooh, anyone know what the route is? I'd like to see some carolers.
