Christmas Eve, at 5 pm is the traditional time to celebrate the holiday with FREE carols at the Washington Square Arch.  The Rob Susman Brass Quartet, song leader and the revelers from all over the city will lustily sing out the familiar tunes.  The words are in the songbooks distributed compliments of the Washington Square Association, but many will know them by heart.  “Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men” will ring out to remind us all of the true meaning of the holidays.
