So, I have a question.

Is Christmas Caroling a lost art?


When I was a teenager, our youth group used to travel to shut-ins, or elderly people who could no longer leave their homes due to illness or disability.

The joy on these folks’ faces as they opened their door, was incredibly rewarding.  Even thought I grew up in Michigan, and caroling could be incredibly chilly and there may be several feet of snow, we gladly bundled up and performed this each year because:
