How to Carol

The following recommendations will help you to have a successful and safe caroling experience.

Do THIS When Caroling

  • Form a group of 7-20 people

  • Start your effort with a prayer for the people to whom you'll be singing

  • Start singing around 7 PM - End the caroling by 9 PM

  • Stay together as you walk on the sidewalks through a neighborhood

  • Stand 10-20 feet away from the front door of the residence. It’s OK to stand in the grass next to the sidewalk. Don't crowd onto the front porch.

  • Identify one person to ring the doorbell after the caroling group is in place.

  • When the door is opened, sing one to two songs. When finished, say "Merry Christmas". As you are leaving, sing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas."

  • Offer a copy of the Christmas Blue Pages to the homeowner, nursing home residents, or business patrons

  • Bring Flashlights!

  • Review these guidelines with your caroling group
