Many of them have grown to love some of the music of the season.  Little drummer boy is sophomore Serenity Miller’s favorite. Miller likes the way the song sounds.

   “I had so much fun and had such a good time with my friends!” Culbertson said.

   Senior Alyson Alcantara’s favorite Christmas song is “Carol of the Bells.”

    “It’s a fast paced song that whisks you away in its melody!” Alcantara said.

   Alcantara enjoys singing carols because of the unity and it brings her peace. Her favorite thing about her caroling experiences is the bond it helps to create.

    “Christmas caroling is always fun. I have fond memories of singing with friends and drinking hot chocolate afterwards!” Alcantara said. 

   Junior Alysia Yoder’s favorite Christmas carol is “The First Noel.”

    “It’s a warm up in choir and I enjoy the sound of it, it’s very angelic,” Yoder said. 

   Her favorite thing about carols are most of the songs are slow and pretty and those are Yoders favorite choir songs in general. 

   She has gone caroling, but her experiences aren’t the best. 

   “It was a fun experience, it was just always cold every time I went so I didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have.” Yoder said.

 The top christmas song this year was “All I want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey. 

These students got to perform some of their favorites at the Dec. 14 winter concert. They performed some holiday songs.
