Sunday night our family, including Nathan, Melanie, Grandad, and Grandma caroled at thirty-three of our neighbors’ homes. Grandma started our Christmas-caroling tradition about seventeen years ago by planning a caroling evening to her Meals-on-Wheels, elderly friends. When she no longer was delivering Meals-on-Wheels, we moved the caroling to our neighborhood.
Along with caroling, we deliver a plate of cookies and candy to each home. This year, we worked on baking goodies to go on the caroling plates for two Saturdays. Then, Sunday afternoon, we compiled the plates. Dad buys brightly wrapped candy at SAMS to add a finishing touch to the plates. We also include a card that we design with a Scripture verse on it with the plate.
After we carol, we go next door to my grandparents, have our evening Bible time together, eat cookies, and drink hot chocolate. Caroling to our neighbors is one of the highlights of the Christmas season for our family!
Only for Jesus,
I didn’t take pictures of this year’s plates, but here are some pictures from last year’s plates.
