Students from the Elizabethton Early Learning Center spread Christmas cheer through downtown Elizabethton, singing Christmas carols on the city sidewalks on Friday afternoon.
The four classes from the ELC led by their teachers made their way through downtown, stopping along the way to sing carols to business owners and shoppers.
ELC teacher Susan Dugger said caroling had been a tradition for the students for the past four years. The students start learning the carols after Thanksgiving to be able to sing to the people in downtown.
“The students really enjoy it,” Dugger said. “They look forward to it.”
The young students sang “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”, “Jingle Bells”, “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”, “Here Comes Santa Claus”, “Deck the Halls”, “S.A.N.T.A.” and “Holly Jolly Christmas.”
