    The Saturday Post: Tis the season...for festive flash mobs

    Thank you to my cousin April for sharing this moving video.

    The boy who's not part of the mob but spontaneously dropped to his knee just grabbed a hold of my heart. So sweet.

    Have a lovely Saturday — and if you witness such a thing at the mall today, do share!

    Just viewed this video on my personal FB page and shared on my business page because it gave me (good) goosebumps. I love it!

    Thanks for posting, Lisa... and sharing a reminder of the real reason behind the season.

    OK -- that really needs to come with a Kleenex alert. I don't know how anyone could watch that and not tear up! How cool would it be to do something like that? Thank you to you and April!

    A teacher friend posted this last week on FB and wanted to get a group together to do something similar in our town. I told her I was game except I couldn't do the solos. I LOVE flash mobs and have seen quite a few in San Francisco. In our backwater town, not, so this would be a great one to pull off.

    Those were some beautiful voices and, the young boy sure did react in a proper way.

    I've never seen such a thing in person but would love to.

    Thanks for posting! I also saw it on my personal FB site. As I posted there......"O Holy Night" always brings tears to my eyes. Have a great Saturday!

    Just beautiful. In every way. Thank you!

    LOVED this! I'd never have the nerve to be the first one singing, though. I'm in awe of their joy and fearlessness. :)
