Spreading Kristmas Cheer for All to Hear

by Rayna DeJongh

Pull out your woolen sweaters and Santa hats, because the Kristmas Kookies are coming to town! Feed your frostbitten ears some Christmas cheer as five retired educators come together to provide four-part harmony originals, featuring your favorite holiday traditions. The comical carols tell light-hearted stories of snow days with Santa and trips to the mall for gifting goodies. Local singer and songwriter Warren Hermodson will lead the Kristmas Kookies in an interactive performance of laughs and jives, featuring the humorous and somewhat sentimental sounds of their second album, “A Second Heaping Helping.” But if you’re not one for change, don’t fret! The Kristmas Kookies continue to share the entertaining hits of their first CD, as well as the sentimental sound of classic Christmas carols. The Kristmas Kookies will spread their joy around the streets of Eau Claire, making multiple appearances throughout November and December. From snowball fights to Christmas dinners, the Kristmas Kookies will fill your frigid soul with the lasting spirit of the holiday season.
