Episode Info

Episode Info:

In this episode, Sarah invites Erin, Bri and Rachel to share their favorite Christmas carols and caroling memories before waxing rhapsodic herself over the history and tradition of her own favorite Christmas hymn — “The Quempas Carol.” What does Sbarro have to do with Christmas caroling? Why does Rachel still blush sometimes when she hears “Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer”? And how, exactly, did little Sarah become the #hymnnerd she is today? The episode wraps with an ethereal a cappella rendition of the first verse of “The Quempas Carol,” sung by Sarah, Erin, and friends.
