I've organized this event now for the past 4 yrs in a row. Again this year, I'll continue the tradition and will invite you all to take part in the annual Christmas Carols organized by CBC. Please note that this event is televised and retransmitted by radio CBC. We will meet at 1pm in front of the Museum of Fine Arts of Montreal.

The annual CBC Christmas Sing-In takes place every December at the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul and Bourgie Hall in Montreal.

Considered by many to mark the official beginning of the holiday season in Montreal, the CBC Christmas Sing-In is wildly popular. Sing-In regulars start lining up outside hours before the performance begins, often in sub-zero temperatures, to make sure they get in. It's an afternoon-long commitment, and an endurance test, but well worth the effort. There's nothing like singing carols to put you in the Christmas spirit.

The Protected content Christmas Sing-In takes place Sunday, Dec. 10, at 3 p.m. We're looking forward to seeing you there, and to help you get through it we've put together a CBC Christmas Sing-In survival guide in the list below.

1. Do dress in layers

Cold outside; warm inside. (But if you're a true Montrealer, you already know all about that.)

2. Don't arrive fashionably late

Even with room for 1,500 in two venues — the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul and Bourgie Hall — you probably won't get in unless you show up by 2 p.m.

3. Do bring snacks

A bite to eat while you're waiting in line will prevent a blood sugar crash while you're singing your favourite Christmas carol.

4. Do enjoy a hot chocolate

Staff from the Café des beaux-arts provide free hot chocolate to those standing in line. Cheers!
