Warm holiday wishes apply to all denominations

Recently, 30 residents of Sun City Aliante joined together on a windy, rainy Sunday to sing carols to their neighbors who are shut-ins. The car caravan went around to 15 homes. Carolers stood in front yards and sang.

The tradition of groups singing door to door, also known as wassailing, goes back hundreds of years.

But, here’s a twist: The Aliante carolers are seniors who are Christian, Jewish and other denominations. They sing to residents of any denomination and so their songs include “Silent Night” and “I Have A Little Dreidel.”

The message of this group is clear: We wish you, all of you, good health, peace and love.
