Something You Don't See Every Day

Carolers, 7th and Pine

A spinoff, I suppose, from the Festival of lights in Kiener Plaza - a group of Christmas carolers at the corner of 7th and Pine downtown, just around the corner from my office. In general, if I rounded this corner heading for lunch, say, and saw a group of eight people like this singing, I'd think a movie company was shooting a remake of Meet Me In St. Louis

The group is standing in front of a state office building that houses the regional Court of Appeals, the workers compensation office and the Missouri attorney general. They could use some glad tidings and good cheer.

Maybe this will mellow what goes on within the courthouse.

Downtown has improved since I worked there thirty years ago! I can remember sitting at a table by the windows at Walgreens restaurant and watching one of the "regulars" on the street -- a guy in a raincoat toting a swordfish....

What a gorgeous photo this is. You could make this into a Christmas Card. It almost looks like a painting. I love it.

Well they've gotten the jump on the Fa La Las I'd say. Love their costumes.

Well I do think that carolling is very pleasant and certainly couldn't do any harm oui :)
