The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. Are you going Christmas caroling this year? Do you love to get into the holiday spirit by singing some of your favorite seasonal songs? Do you ever pull a Kevin McCallister and sing The Drifters' version of "White Christmas" in front of the bathroom mirror after getting out of the shower? If you're looking to turn your Christmas caroling experience around, there's someone who can help. Tom Hiddleston has some Christmas caroling tips that will help you spread holiday cheer the right way.
As all Hiddlestoners know, T. Hiddles can sing. Hello, he stars as Hank Williams in I Saw the Light ! Also, here's a video round-up of him showcasing his pipes that will make you swoon even harder than you already do. OK. Back to the serious matter at hand: Christmas caroling. If you've been doing it for years, then you're probably already a pro. Me, on the other hand, not so much, which is why I, like some of you, need Hiddleston's help.
It takes a lot of stamina, cheer, and festive beverages (spiked or not spiked, whichever you prefer) to go around singing a bunch of Christmas songs.
That's where Hiddleston comes in handy. Let him help you become an even better Christmas caroler, because why not? Plus, you might even receive praise from Buddy the Elf. Let's get to it.
1. Smiling Goes A Long Way
First of all, who isn't happy when singing Christmas songs? Second, your smile will come naturally while belting out the songs of the season. Third, how much warmer and happier are you after staring at Hiddleston's smile? My point is made.
2. Christmas Caroling Garb Is Key
Why not dress the part? I mean, what's the point of getting into the entire experience if you're going to slack on the costume? Just look at Loki here, who is clearly feeling his attire and playing the part to the max.
3. Memorize, Memorize, Memorize
Sometimes carolers carry sheets of music around, but come on. If you're going to commit, you might as well give it 100 percent by memorizing each song — similar to what Hiddleston does when acting.
4. Stay Warm
Who wants to be cold while singing? Not me. Stay warm by bundling up, or you'll look just as concerned as Loki here.
5. Sing Loud For All To Hear
Like Buddy the Elf says, singing loud for all to hear is the best way to spread Christmas cheer. Don't pull a Walter (Buddy's dad) by pretending to sing. Rather, be like Loki who gives really loud speeches or take notes from Hiddleston as Hank Williams who ensures crowds can hear him.
6. Drink In Moderation
Let's face it, sometimes Christmas caroling involves a holiday beverage, because it is a special occasion. But don't drink too much, because you might not remember the lyrics, forget the entire experience, and look like Hiddleston above.
7. Have Fun!
This is the most important part, and I'm sure the actor would want you to have all the fun in the world.
And with that...
