Christmas is just around the corner, and with all the hustle and bustle so many activities are always happening during the silly season. Christmas carols are a beautiful time where friends and family can get together for some quality time.
This community event is usually free and a great chance to share in the season that is so well known for the birth of our saviour Jesus Christ. For some people it means Santa Claus, presents and food, but one thing we all have in common is enjoying the celebrations every year together.
Let's check out some places that seem to have mastered the Christmas Carols event every year.
Lord Mayor's Christmas Carols has entertainment for the kids.
The famous Lord Mayor's Christmas Carols seem to draw hundreds of people to the botanical gardens every year. There is always a line up of talented singers and this year is no different. Did you know you can even volunteer to help set up for this big event? Who knows you might get an opportunity to rub shoulder's with a famous artist. For more information you can visit their dedicated website at Lord Mayor's Christmas Carols or keep up to date with the festivities at the Lord Mayor's Christmas Carols Facebook page.
If you are looking for something a little bit more traditional maybe St John's Cathedral is for you. Every year they have a Christmas Carols service that features solo performances and a professional choir setting. Members of the public are welcome to attend and you can visit St John's Cathedral for the time and location of this peaceful event.
