I hope you are enjoying this lovely time of year! I love all the lights, Christmas music and holiday cheer. The season began back in October for me with rehearsals for “The Nutcracker” ballet. It was a magical experience and I was amazed at all the beautiful costuming, props and dancers. But the best part for me was that for the first time my brother, Andrew, and I were in a production together. I am grateful for the fun memories.
For the past 3 years, I have been organizing a group of students ages preschool through middle school to go Christmas caroling at Gracewood senior living. Gracewood is an assisted living community and a memory care center. Many of the residents love to sing along to the songs they know. I think the crowd favorite is “Angels We Have Heard on High”. The Christmas caroling always lights up everyone’s spirits and after caroling we all love to eat delicious cookies. Who doesn’t like a little sugar! Everyone had tons fun and I can’t wait for Christmas caroling again next year!
Have a lovely holiday season everyone!
