Sunday late afternoon, we embarked on our yearly tradition of caroling to neighbors. We first started caroling almost 25 years ago with Grandad and GiGi to the route GiGi delivered Meals on Wheels to. Over time, we began doing it in our neighborhood. We’re guessing maybe 10-15 years. Whomever in the family can come is welcome, and this year, everyone was able to make it (including the 10-days-away-from-wedding-date groom).
Without question, Sunday evening turned out to be our best ever! It seemed most everyone was home, the temperatures moderate, the joy on our friends’ faces amazing, and the little ones sang out like never before. Truly a sweet time to share Jesus’ love through Christmas cheer, smiles, and Poppy Seed Bread! Mom was an amazing gem to make all that bread, and Anna and Mary worked hard on creating beautiful cards to go with them.
I encourage you, if you have children old enough to sing, start this tradition! It’s worth it.
“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.”
