- Sing a Christmas carol as part of dinner grace. Explain the words beforehand, and then sing it prayerfully
- Have a sing-along with friends. Use YouTube videos with lyrics to get more people to sing. In between each song have friends tell what they love about each song. Don’t forget the hot chocolate.
- Print the lyrics to a song and have older children (or your spouse) highlight the portions of the song which have a message about salvation history.
- Have musical family members prepare a carol for your family/friends Christmas gathering. Or ask the host if you can play something. Even little kids who are just starting out can be included.
- Bring your re-ignited understanding of the carols to the elderly. Carol at a nursing home. Consider organizing an event for a group you are part of, or do this just as a family and friends.
- Try using this list of carols with lyrics and YouTube links.
