Christmas Caroling - Fun Holiday Activity

This year, if you are looking for a fun and festive way to spread Christmas cheer for all to hear, gather your friends and loved ones to form a caroling group. During the holiday season there is nothing better than seeing friends, family, and local community members gathering to the sounds of Christmas music.

For a successful Christmas caroling trip, start by gathering a fun group of singers and decide where it is you want to lend your voices. Traditionally people travel around their neighborhoods to sing festive Christmas tunes, but you might also consider finding local holiday events, community centers, or even hospitals that might need the added cheer during this time of year. To help keep everyone on track, think about creating small maps of where you and your group will be caroling.

Next, your caroling group will need to agree upon a song list. Feel free to check out our playlists for the top 10 Christmas songs  for a little inspiration. There are classics that everyone knows like “Frosty the Snowman” or “The Christmas Song”, in addition to a few contemporary songs that might spice up your more traditional variety of songs. Once your song list is settled, gather the lyrics to each song and create a small handmade song book or pamphlet for each member of your group. That way, everyone will be able to sing along, even if they are not too familiar with the lyrics.

And last, but certainly not least, be sure that everyone has a little time that they can set aside during this busy season to practice. This will not only help get everyone on the same page but it will also give your group the time needed to perfect any special song arrangements they might want to try out.

With those basic components out of the way, you can start focusing on some of the more fun and frivolous features that you and your group can consider adding to your routine:

  • Coordinating Christmas themed outfits around traditional symbols of the season like holiday reindeer, elves, Santa Claus, or ornamented trees.
  • Distributing holiday treats like candy canes, cookies, or other small gifts to people you meet while caroling through the streets.
  • Choreographing simple dance moves that everyone can easily learn. Little details like this can really liven up your next caroling trip.

When planning for your next Christmas caroling adventure, don’t be afraid to think out of the box. Creative thinking can really help set your group apart from all the other carolers that come around for the holidays.
