Dressed in Christmas attire and ringing bells, on Saturday, December 10th, Marco Lutheran Church members continued a 20-year tradition of Christmas caroling around the island on the Marco Trolley. The ad hoc choir visited seven homes, traveling from one end of the island to the other, singing all the way.
Various familiar sacred and secular songs were sung on the bus while the group moved from one home to the next during the twohour tour. Only one rule applied: no Christmas song can be sung twice while on board.
In good humor and while on the bus, the group leader made sure the singing was politically correct by including a Jewish song, a Kwaanza song, and the Navy Hymn!
Cookies are always a big part of the caroling tradition, so at one home a large tray of cookies made its way through the choir. And everything was accomplished in one merry night!
