The spirit of Christmas… Maine style.

.

A friend of mine shared an experience recently and it made my heart swell. Not in the ‘omg I knew I shouldn’t have eaten so much fettuccine Alfredo’ way … but in the ‘there are still good people in the world’ way.

.

.

That’s her in front, leading a group of Christmas carolers on horseback. They were on their way to bring some holiday cheer to a local nursing facility and veterans home.

.

.

Santa was there.

.

.

And she said the smiles on the resident’s faces when they met the horses were priceless.

.

.

Everyone got to pet a horse.

.

.

Even the residents who couldn’t leave their rooms.

.

.

I don’t own or even know how to ride a horse, but I’m tempted to ask if I can join them next year.

If nothing else, I can sing off key with the best of them.

😉

  1. Your friend and her group of horse riding carolers are amazing!! Not to mention the horses that seem to enjoy the visitation and petting as well. I just love Santa’s horse with his little cap to keep his/her horsey ears warm 🐎🎄🐎🎄🐎. Maybe you should tag along next year!
