St. Louis Christmas Carols Association
7425 Forsyth Blvd.
St.Louis, MO 63105
William H. Danforth and a group of his friends started the St. Louis Christmas Carols Association in 1911. They wanted to share the joy and good will of the season with their neighbors by caroling outside of their homes. The tradition continues today, and the St. Louis Christmas Carols Association is asking for volunteers, individuals and schools to sing in neighborhoods and other venues. The St. Louis Christmas Carols Association collected donations for local St. Louis agencies. If you would like to join in the St. Louis caroling tradition, click here.
