Carol Mob 1- Downtown
Secret Plan: everyone got on the last car of the 1:15 inbound Orange Line train and started singing all at once. Performance art, yassir. We got a few ladies in the car singing with us, though they would not join us to carol. We got off at the New England Medical Center stop and got the "White Christmas" crowd coming out of the Wang center. I think they thought we were part of the show.
We went up past the opera house where the Nutcracker was playing and we sang in their entryway- nice acoustics!- ... Overheard comment: "...they look like real people!..." (as opposed to ...? I think they meant as opposed to paid actors and so forth, but it was funny out of context). Next we got on the Red Line to Harvard.
Harvard Square wasn't so interesting from a caroling standpoint, but then we went to Burdick's for hot cocoa. Whoa! yoiks! Rich!
Carol Mob 2- Sheridan Street in JP
This was a nice time full of warm fuzzies. No real great stories, just the kind of generous warmth that's the reason I started this event. People came out to listen; some people had their families and kids around; it was great. Some people took pictures, and if you were one of those, please send them to me. I'd love to update this site a little.
