My all-time favourite Christmas fun thing to do, is to find a local Christmas Carol Event - and in 2021 the Sunny Coast has a few - that embraces the festivities of Christmas, bringing family and friends together, for a fabulous tinsel-lated outing. I absolutely love the warm and fuzzy ambience that seems to enfold the audience in a bear hug, when singing along with old well-remembered Christmas favourites, making these festive events, firm family favourites.
