CAPE RAY – Residents of Cape Ray were lucky enough to be treated to a bit of holiday spirit in the form of Christmas carols last Saturday, Dec. 19.

A group of young ladies went around the community during the prolonged power outage to croon some festive holiday tunes to their friends, family and teachers, says Cathy Furlong.

“They started by decorating their Christmas mobile, including a light up tree on the top,” said Furlong.

The ladies sang for almost three hours and covered a wide variety of songs. Their repertoire included everything from old favourites like Deck The Halls, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Winter Wonderland to the more tongue-in-cheek favourites such as All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth and I’m Getting Nothing For Christmas.

Given the smiles of everyone involved, that last one at least seems rather unlikely.

“They had a lot of fun spreading Christmas cheer around the community,” noted Furlong.
