For the last 55 years, University of Illinois students have given of their time during the holidays to sing a holiday song for anyone who calls. The students in the Snyder Hall dorm host their “Dial-a-carol” program every year as a way to help students relive stress and blow off steam between finals and Christmas break by singing any Christmas song the caller wants to hear. In 2015, the program started on December 10t and in less than 24 hours, calls had come in from all 50 states. Within a week, they had broken the record for the most calls ever.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell.
