Hometown carolers spread Christmas cheer

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)- The cold, night air was filled with some holiday cheer Tuesday night.

Hundreds of carolers with “Chippewa Valley's Hidden Treasures” and Santa's Tree Farm took time out of
their evening to go from neighborhood to neighborhood, singing Christmas songs.

Yesterday they stopped in Augusta and Tuesday they went through Altoona, Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, Mondovi, Durand, Bloomer and Ladysmith. Organizers say it's a fun way to lift the Christmas spirit.

"We just encourage people to go around your neighborhood or in a joint location. Maybe where you know some elderly people live or where you have friends, and just try to brighten up their Christmas'." Crystal Schmidt with Hometown carolers said.

Schmidt says it’s great to see the looks on people's faces, since most people have never experienced carolers before.
