I enjoyed this beause of the hope at the end. My mother will be playing piano for the carolers I'm sure.
Lots of good imagery here in the little details you included.

There was a sudden POV switch about halfway through that might need to be signaled with a triple asterisk, and some of your dialogue seems a bit stilted--try using a few contractions to make your people talk more realistically.

The first half of this is particularly well-written.
A well written, poignant story. :)
Such a sad memory of caroling. Nicely written. Thank you.
ps. I'm glad there was the light of hope at the end.
