University of Illinois student Katherine Moss sings to callers as part of the annual Dial-A-Carol program in Champaign, Ill. The student-run project is a hotline of sorts for people who prefer their holiday carols sung live by amateurs. The program was started in 1960 by a former hall secretary, Betty Gordon, and a group of the dorm residents. Last year, the student volunteers took more than 4,000 calls from people all over the world requesting Jingle Bells, White Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

The phones are jingling off the hook at Dial-a-Carol, a student-run project on the University of Illinois’ Champaign campus. It’s a hotline of sorts for people who prefer hearing holiday music sung by a choir of amateurs who’ve been up all night studying.
