Happy second day of Christmas!
Hundreds of shoppers at Central Market got a glorious surprise Saturday morning when at least 125 people around them suddenly began singing the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s “Messiah.”
At 9:30 a.m. a mass of people, many wearing Santa hats and reindeer antlers, found their way to the center of market and suddenly, the opening chords of the “Hallelujah Chorus” filled the air and voices rose in unison to sing the Christmas classic.
Commerce pretty much came to a halt for the next four minutes as standholders and shoppers stopped to listen and possibly join in.
Central Market had its very first flash mob.
