Supporters of Bernie Sanders in Los Angeles have taken to the streets to sing Christmas carols about the presidential candidate.
On Sunday, around a dozen supporters went caroling for six hours through the streets of Los Angeles, singing traditional Christmas carols with a Bernie Sanders twist.
Lauren Steiner, who conceived the idea, told the Bernie Post that she has been working on putting the project together since Thanksgiving.
“We started at the Mar Vista Farmers Market, proceeding through the hip shopping street ofAbbott Kinney Blvd in Venice, hitting a few locations on Main St in Santa Monica, and ended up at the famous Third Street Promenade,” she told us.
“One of the volunteers brought his guitar and he accompanied the singers, and others brought bells.
The carolers sung 16 standard Christmas carols with lyrics adapted to reflect Bernie Sanders’ platform.”
Lauren says local LA for Bernie volunteer Debra Mayes helped her to write the carols, as well as Meria Marom, Nathan Kersey-Wilson and Sarah Remley.
The supporters also went into an Apple store, where they navigated the devices to Bernie Sanders’ campaign website.
After six long hours of caroling, the group retired at a local restaurant on the Promenade to enjoy a well earned round of drinks and appetizers.
Lauren is encouraging other local Bernie groups across the country to hold similar events, and says anyone wishing to obtain the lyrics to her carols can do so by sending her an email.
Photographer Brian Feinzimer captured photos of the the enthusiastic Sanders supporters. His photos were published in the LA Weekly.
