Our little town has its own community carols every year. I have been before, and it is always lots of fun. There is a BBQ and Santa visits. I endeavour to go every year, but almost always there is something else on. I go to the carols service at church every year. I love to sing carols and they always help me get in the spirit of Christmas. My son works at the Carols by Candlelight in Melbourne every year. I think I get a better view at home so I don't have any ambition to attend . It does look like everyone is having a great time though when they scan the audience.
