So how many people would be intersted in doing some caroling in Chicago? I know the 21st is a monday, but many of us are on break/vacation. It would probabley start at like 12 or 1, and then go until 7, with breaks for hot chocolate, of course.

SONGS:

Carol of the Bells
Silent Night
We Wish You a Merry Christmas
All I want For Christmas is You(Girls only)
Jingle Bell Rock
The 12 Days of Christmas
I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause
Rockin' Arounf the Christmas Tree
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Winter Wonderland
O Holy Night
Jingle Bells
Santa Clause is Coming to Town
The First Noel
The Christmas Song

I noes! ^_^ I haven't caroled in so long. We would need some people who know A LOT of Christmas music to lead, since I wouldn't want to do it alone. But also, should we learn some Hanukah/ Kwana songs so we don't get in trouble?

Now here's what I'm thinking! Come December 1st, we'll probabley have a good idea how many people are going. We can choose 10-15 songs that everyone knows. I will provide the lyrics for all the songs, but to save paper, I will only give packets to half the people, and then folks can pair up, so it'll look cute. ^_^

Or, if that sounds stupid, tell me. A lot of my ideas fail. :(


Also, let's hope we get a nearly equal group of boys and girls, so we can seperate a few parts into two!

No thats actually an adorable idea! Just make sure that people that go aren't sick. Being cute and closelike like that could spread germs like a beachball. Ick.

Well, if we decide partners early enough, maybe they can even show up together, which would perhaps make transportation easier!

If anyone would be getting on the train at either the down town Naperville or Aurora train station to head up there once everything is more in order, please let me know.
This sounds like something I'd like to do but I really wouldn't want to go up there alone. Ya, I know I'm a 26 year old guy, but still the whole safety in numbers sounds better to me.

Yay! Ok, hopefully tonight, I'm going to put up a poll of 30 christmas songs, and the top 15 will be in. I already have the list, but please give me some ideas! Remember, we want fairly easy, popular songs, that a lot of us will know. Also, Some nondenominational songs would be good.

Got the polls up early.

Also, since it gets dark at like 5 in December, does anyone object to using electronic candles for the last few hours? Or does that seem too corny?

I think the electric candles idea is super. :o Looks nice AND we'd have some light XD

So I voted for the couple of songs that I actually KNOW. XD Afraid I'm not up-to-date with the popish sounding ones, but I know the traditional stuff. And I DO know that I have an absolutely phenomenal score of Silent Night that my choir sang a few years back. :D ...Course it was hard...and took months of practice...but hey, I can dream! XD

Voting will actually end November 15th, since I need time to come up with supplies/props/booklets, and people will have to learn the music!


Also, depending on what wins, there will be several songs that sound best with a solo part. If you're interested PM me come the 15th.

Well actually, I was hoping it wouldn't be cosplay coroling, and that people just wore Acen T-Shirts if they wanted to advertise the con or let people know who we are. But If people want to cosplay, I guess I don't really have a right to say that they can't...but maybe it could be winter/holidayish?
