Baby Sings Adorable Christmas Carol (With A Little Help From Dad)

YouTube/ mcselfoneal

What better way to get into the Christmas spirit than by singing carols with your family?

One dad has found an ingenious way to involve even the very youngest family members in the sing-along.

As she's just six and a half months old his daughter can't speak yet, but she's not going to let a little thing like lack of vocabulary hold her back from joining in the festive fun.

"Deck the halls with boughs of holly," sings dad.

And with perfect musical timing the little girl senses it's her turn to come in and opens her mouth wide to provide the 'Fa, la, la, la, la' part - with a little help from dad wiggling his finger.

They manage to get all the way through to the line: 'Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la la la la la,' with dad valiantly fighting off his urge to chuckle.

After watching the video we applaud his efforts as his daughter's gleeful 'singing' had us in fits of giggles.

With such an early start, this little girl has got to be a shoe-in for any future school nativity plays.
