This year, round up some candles and maybe some friends. Print some Christmas carols and light up the night with a song!
Christmas Adventus 2011: Place a candle in tonight’s advent bag (#23). Print out the words to some familiar Christmas carols. Some time after dark, light your candles and start walking. Stop at each door, ring the bell and begin singing. Don’t be surprised if people want a few more songs and a picture. If you’re feeling hospitable, invite some friends to go along and, when the caroling is over, go back to your house for some honey tea and cocoa.
