    Ah, the beauty of the fifes and drums. Below is a video captured on Christmas Eve in Williamsburg, VA.

    The beginning of video features traditional songs and at the 2:43 mark, Christmas songs begin.

    If you ever have a chance to visit Williamsburg (especially at Christmas), I encourge you to do so.

    Well, I tried to play it, but it said the video is no longer available.
    Anyway, I have always wanted to visit Williamsburg at Christmas - glad you got to experience it!:tree:

    We were there when we were younger, a summer trip to visit an uncle in Pennsylvania and a few other spots along the way.
    My brothers participated in a mock shoot out.
    Can`t recall why were in Virginia, but my dad liked taking scenic routes.
