The weather outside was frightful, but the choir was so delightful. Actually, the weather was a bit cold and breezy but it was the perfect night for a tree lighting. The only thing that could have added to the atmosphere would have been a gentle snow, but we didn't get that. And the East York Barbershoppers who attended had a great time drinking hot chocolate, eating cookies and singing Christmas songs at Councillor Janet Davis' tree lighting at Dawes Crossing (Victoria Park and Dawes Road).
We sang a couple of songs of the season. Sort of a foretaste of our party next Tuesday. After we'd sung a number of tunes, we had visitors show up to give us a break. It was Post It, who had been rehearsing at Harmony Hall and they sang several songs including Little Toy Trains and I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas, to the delight of the children (of all ages) present.
It was a fantastic way to kick off the holiday season and everyone left in a festive mood.
