About twenty-five friends gathered for my annual carol-singing party. This tradition has been going about ten years now. I invite anyone I know of who likes to sing, I have copies of lots of carols, and the idea is to get together, eat, drink and sing through the repertoire of favourites. Last year we added in a street-sing and doorknocking, and raised money for Oxfam in the process. This year we took that approach again, and so a new tradition begins.
We raised $200 for the Hotham Mission Asylum Seeker Project. It was a hot night which meant we did tire quickly, but we were nourished by all the delicious food that everyone contributed. Here are some photos from the night:
