Greeting Card Campaign: December 20 Go Caroling Day

Click here to download Go Caroling Day card.
December 20th is Go Caroling Day.  A lot of groups and communities have caroling traditions that have grown out of traditions like wassailing in England. Lately, choirs, orchestras and even the US Air Force band and chorus have begun doing surprise Christmas flash mobs during the holiday season. Caroling was more popular 30 or 40 years ago, but is enjoying a resurgence with the flash mob trend.

Plan a caroling expedition to celebrate the holidays. Think nursing homes and senior citizen centers. Just call the managers to arrange a date and time. Finish your, caroling event with snacks, hot chocolate and cookies. Tell your sweetheart she makes your heart sing with this free downloadable, printable, Go Caroling Day card. Just click on the caption below the picture of the carolers. Remember, instead of printing from Google Docs, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Download" and copy the file to your own computer.  Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you use and print the card from there. For some reason Google Docs doesn't handle fonts well, even though they are supposed to be embedded in the PDF document itself. 

This is a top fold card, so when it prints, be sure to tell your printer it's in "portrait" format so you get the whole file. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This also flips the inside upside down from the outside when you print in portrait mode, so that, when you fold it over, the inside comes out right side up.  If you're confused, I encourage you to give it a try with a practice sheet.
