Hello future readers,
We've been practicing at school for our annual Christmas concert. Last week when I was watching Christmas specials, and I saw people walking from house to house caroling, I thought we should do that too! It would be a good way to get in some practice and have fun at the same time! Some of my friends thought that this was a groovy idea, too. So yesterday Sunny and I walked down to Kerry and Velvet's house to meet up some of our friends.
It had been raining here in Springfield for the last few days, and I'm glad it stopped long enough for us to go Christmas caroling. I had never done this before and I was pretty excited! When we got the Kerry and Velvet's house, Danny, Jason, Kyle, Raychel, Bridget and Lisa were all waiting for us.
Jason knocked on the door, and as soon as Kerry opened it, we started singing "Jingle Bells".
Kerry and little Velvet were so surprised! Velvet started singing along with us.
They wished all of us a Merry Christmas, and we all walked to our next stop, Miss :LaSalle's house. This time Sunny knocked on the door.
When Miss LaSalle answered the door, we all started singing "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen".
I thought it was kinda funny that both Sunny and Miss LaSalle were wearing purple tams and purple jackets!
Miss LaSalle told us we did very well, and she hoped we sang as well for our Christmas concert at school. She wished us all a Merry Christmas and told us she'd see us on Monday. Next we went to Mrs. Johnson's house, and it was my turn to knock on the door.
When Mrs. Johnson opened the door, we sang "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire".
A couple of years ago, Mrs. Johnson was our Music teacher at school. I know she sometimes misses it, especially during Christmas. She was always the one who got us ready for the concerts, and led the singing in assembly at school. She looked like she was gonna cry when we finished. She told us she was really proud of us, and couldn't wait for our Christmas concert! Even though I love Miss LaSalle, Mrs. Johnson is pretty far out, too.
Our last stop was Mrs. Taylor's house. We didn't tell her we'd be practicing some of our songs this way, and we knew she'd be surprised. Bridget knocked on her door, and even before she opened it, we began singing "The First Noel".
And man, was she ever surprised! She thought this was a wonderful way to practice our songs. She told us we were doing very well, and that if we sang this good at the concert, it was gonna be a smash. We all cheered!
Well, the clouds were coming back, so we decided it was time to go one home. It was nearly dinner time, anyway. But Mrs. Taylor wanted to take our picture before we left.
I had so much fun! Do people in the future still go caroling? If you don't, you should try it! It's really outta site! I love any reason to sing Christmas carols! It just makes me feel all groovy inside! Christmas is my very favorite holiday! I hope it's yours too!
Until next time, future readers,
