Bicyclist spread joy with lights, music


On Christmas Eve, as my family was gathered for supper and presents, we heard loud Christmas music coming from outside. We went to the door and about two blocks away we saw, what we thought, was a float.

As we all stood outside in the cold, the music got louder and we couldn’t believe what we saw. There was a two-wheel bike pulling a small trailer with a huge speaker on it. It was lit up with Christmas lights and the music vibrated around the neighborhood.

As the man traveled up and down the streets, we could see people coming out of their houses to see the spectacle in front of them.

What a wonderful experience this was. I hope others who were lucky enough to see and hear this, felt the same way. This is what Christmas is supposed to be about. Spreading joy and love to others.

I feel so fortunate to have seen this with my family. It made all of us feel warm.

I don’t know who this man was, but I want to let him know he made our Christmas better with a bike, some lights and the beautiful music he played.

To go out in the cold on Christmas Eve, peddling a bike around to make others smile, says a lot about this person. We appreciate him so much. Bless him for showing us how it should be done.
