9. Sing Yuletide Carols at Washington Square Park

Washington Square Park arch Christmas tree

Nothing will get you into the holiday spirit more than lending your vocals to a Christmas choir. The Washington Square Association, which provides the annual Christmas tree south of the Washington Square Arch, is offering two opportunities for the public to participate in a session of Christmas Eve caroling.

Head to the park on December 24 from 5pm to 6pm to join the Rob Susman Brass Quartet and other carolers as they belt out familiar holiday tunes. Song books will be distributed, although you likely won’t need them.
