This week I went with my Bible Study ladies to sing at a home for Seniors. We used these song books from 1938. We had borrowed them from our choir director at church. I fell in love with the book and asked her if I could keep one. She said yes, that no one used them anymore because they were so old. My family is caroling on Christmas Eve so I was able to borrow more books for us to use that night.
When I was a little girl all the children in my family would carol around the neighborhood on Christmas Eve. I don't think we used any books, we just sang from memory. This book is a lot older than I am but I can imagine my mother using a book like this in her Sunday School class to sing Christmas Carols.
