A fa‑la‑la‑la‑la farewell to 2018

- December 21, 2018

'Twas the day before the day before holiday break
And all through Dal's halls
Those who were left were, indeed, stirring,
Shouting: "The Carol Sing calls!"

They rushed to the Arts Centre
Lyric sheets printed white
To sing all their favourites
From “Rudolph” to “Silent Night”

President Florizone’s “jokes”
Silly puns seeking laughter
Garnered guffaws and groans
From the Sculpture Court’s rafters

The singing was led
By the Fountain School’s (Jacqueline) Warwick
Who sprinkled her intros
With song facts historic

Lynette (Wahlstrom) played the keys
While car keys in the crowd jingled
Makeshift Christmas bells
Truly worthy of Kris Kringle

When the songs were all sung
And door prizes awarded
With chowder and nog
The crowd’s chorus was rewarded

Danny Abriel’s photos
Captured all the sights
Merry Christmas — and happy holidays! — to all
And to all a goodnight
