December 4th...went Christmas Caroling at the Nursing Home with my RAAPA friends. Always glad I go, but bittersweet to go as well.
Great experience! Would definitely like to make a tradition out of it. :)
December 16th, 2011.
Went Christmas caroling with Jane, Peiyi, and Felix around Riverdale's neighbourhood! It was soo much fun. When I first suggested the idea of caroling, noone was close to how excited I felt about it. But during the two days before the excursion, we managed to plan out a fun caroling trip, that involved wearing santa hats, and singing to Starbucks. We sang the same two songs for the entire trip, alternating between then (Let it Snow & Jingle Bell Rock) to GBK, Starbucks, a man in Pizza Pizza, and several houses along smaller streets. :D Sadly, we didn't get any free drinks from Starbucks (lol), but on one of the more private streets, an old man we sang to was nice enough to give us a handful of change that totalled up to $9 ($2.25 per person). He told us that noone had come caroling down his street for over 10 years. It was an amazing experience to have that I will never forget, and I'm glad that we made at least one person's Christmas a little more special.
