While traversing the Filene Center grounds looking for good photo and video opportunities, I spoke with several moms and dads who brought along their first-time little ones to experience the magic of Holiday Sing. Do they know or understand the meaning of the words to the songs? No, not really but even at the young age of 1 or 2, it was evident they were wrapped up in the music, the communal vibes, and the overall ebullient spirit of the event.
We weren't quite sure if they'd show up this year due to their busy schedules (i.e. competitive dance-off), but once again we were graced with the presence of Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer! They made a brief appearance on-stage during their respective songs. And finally, we were visited by Merry Old St. Nick, who made everyone's face light up like a Christmas tree, or a menorah!
