MORGAN COUNTY, W. Va--One of the favorite pastimes of the Christmas season is listening to Christmas carols, Morgan County residents were treated to jolly tunes and favorite songs.

Those are the sounds of the Alleghany Ramblers, a blue grass band from Glenville State College. They were in Morgan County, to spread some Christmas cheer at "Here We Come A-Caroling!" at Berkeley Springs Presbyterian Church.

"It's great growing up from here being an artist growing up in this area, everybody was really supportive of me and the community," says Robbie Mann of Alleghany Ramblers. "It's really great to come back and give back to the community."

Residents listened to music and the history of various Christmas carols. Susanna Holstein also known as "Granny Sue," a storyteller from Jackson County told how carols like Frosty the Snowman were written by Walter Rollins who was from Mineral County, West Virginia.

"You get a lot of surprises, I had no idea, that's where that story originated, and had no idea that carol came from that tradition, or that's why that particular word was used in that particular song," says Susanna Holstein, storyteller known as "Granny Sue."

Locals say it was a perfect start to the Christmas season.

"Just hearing the music and getting in the Christmas spirit and spending time with my family, friends, I think it the most enjoyable part of it," says Pam Mann, Organizer, "Here We Come A-Caroling."

"I think it is great," says Pastor Bob Osborne of Berkeley Springs Presbyterian Church."I love this type of music I love these people you can't do it any better for the season than this."

About 20 locals attended "Here We Come A-Caroling!"
