The movie “Elf” starring Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel promotes the idea that “the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” For many, carolers are steadfast a tradition of the Christmas season, and individuals young and old look for opportunities to participate in Christmas caroling or to be caroled to. The young girls group from First Baptist Church of Van Alstyne were able to participate in this spirited tradition by visiting Meadowbrook Nursing Home earlier this month and caroling to residents there. These photos illustrate the Christmas cheer they were able to spread through song.
