You may be wondering why a group of 20 students would be standing outside for an hour on such a cold morning! Today the Junior Classical League, JCL, chapter at Marist held their annual Cocoa and Carols festivity! From 8:00 until 9:00, the other officers and I, along with many Latin students, sang carols in Latin over and over again. We sang classic carols like O Come, O Come Emmanuel and Silent Night. We also sang some less common hymns such as God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen and Creator of the Stars of Night. While singing these songs we drank hot cocoa and passed it out to students arriving at school. We had ten gallons of cocoa to start with and managed to drink almost all of it!
