Christmas carols filled the cafeteria at Miller Heights Elementary School Wednesday. 

Fourth-grader Aubrey Lynch said she loves Christmas. 

"Because it's Jesus' birthday and you get to give presents, and you also get to get presents," said Aubrey. 

Filled with holiday cheer, she was excited to join students and community members for a holiday sing-a-long. 

Students sang Christmas carols and staff read Christmas poems.

"We've been inviting our families up here for the community sing-a-long for at least 30 years. It's a long-standing tradition, and it's just a really fun way to kick off the holidays," said Principal Jennifer Conner. 

Aubrey's big sister, who also went to Miller Heights Elementary School, even joined the holiday magic. 

"We didn't have much to do at school today, and so my mom said I could come along, watch their performances and go to their class parties," said Kyleigh Lynch, Aubrey's sister.  

Aubrey said it was the perfect start to her holiday break. 

"Because you don't have to go to school, and you do Christmas," said  Aubrey.
