Where To Get Your Christmas Caroling On In NYC


I was walking my chihuahua down 5th Avenue recently and unexpectedly came across a group of carolers.  Best treat EVER!  No lie, we stopped in our tracks, plopped on a bench and spent the next hour listening to renditions of Jingle Bells and Come All Ye Faithful.  Although the chihuahua was chilly, he enjoyed all the attention from tourists almost as much as I enjoyed the singing.



While this particular group was a bit of an improv performance, there are many opportunities for organized caroling in NYC that are not only festive, but completely free.  Here’s a few we’re really excited about:
