I love Christmas music. I could listen to it all year long. In other languages even, like this fun Christmas classic that seemed like such a great fit for my “Christmas in July” series:
One of my favorite things to during the Advent season is to go caroling around our neighborhood.
We do this every year. We usually carol with a group of friends (which is especially nice when they know how to sing parts). Sometimes we’ll have a hayride and carol from the wagon, but we normally just walk door to door. Some of our neighbors who know we are coming invite their friends over to listen, as well, and serve us cookies and hot chocolate when we’ve finished singing.
If you’ve never caroled before, maybe this year would be a good time to try it.
Of course, it works best when everybody is singing off the same sheet of music, so toward that end, I wanted to share these printable Christmas carol song sheets (just click on any of the images below to print them all:
I realize you probably won’t want to go door-to-door singing Christmas carols in July, but this is also a great month to start brainstorming gift ideas. I spotted several things in Educents’ $15000 Back-to-School Giveaway that my kids would absolutely love to find under the Christmas tree, including:
- A 3-D scanner
- A basic buiding kit from Michoduino
- $165 worth of fun-schooling books from the thinking tree
