Blogging about an annual public caroling event in downtown Binghamton, New York, has become another holiday tradition on this blog.
On the last work day before Christmas, people working in the Security Mutual building, a historical building dating from 1904, gather in the lobby to sing Christmas songs at noontime.
Part of the beautiful lobby. I believe the murals (which are on two sides) were added in the 1980's.
The lobby's Christmas tree.
Here is a selection of songs from Thursday's caroling. I am not an experienced video taker, and it shows. I also did some panning so you could see the beautiful historic Security Mutual marble lobby, something members of the public can only see at this time.
Jingle Bell Rock
O Christmas Tree
Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree.
Tomorrow, another Christmas post.
Hanukah begins tonight at sundown. Last year, in the lobby, symbols of the two holidays sat side by side. I will blog more about Hanukah later this week.
To my readers of the Jewish faith, may we light the darkness once again, and think of the days ahead.
