A wise elf once said, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loudly for all to hear,” and you should certainly follow his advice during these fun Christmas caroling events in NYC. Some of the best NYC parks and New York attractions are welcoming carolers to partake in festive (and free!) merriment. If your American Idol audition was a total fail, don’t fret—not all of these caroling events require you to sing. But you should still feel comfortable belting classics such as “Silent Night” and “Jingle Bell Rock” in the company of your New York peers. Make sure to take a moment to enjoy all the pretty Christmas lights during caroling processions such as Unsilent Night.
