Carol Dancing

 Each year, a group of friends and I have a tradition of carol dancing at the Trail of Lights.  Carol dancing, meaning performing a Christmas-themed flash mob. This year, we danced to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, “The 12 Days of Christmas” as well as a more secular number, “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift. 

Between the rehearsals, dressing up, good friends and the magic of the Trail of Lights, carol dancing is always one of my favorite activities of the year. (:

We sadly didn’t get a great video of us carol dancing down at the Trail of Lights, but just try to imagine us in our outfits above doing the dance in the video below. (A rendition of the 1988 National Aerobics Championship opening) Keep in mind, this is us only after a few hours of beginning to learn the dance – not so bad!
