CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Yuletide carols sung by a choir… are now just a call away. A holiday hotline that has phones jingling off the hook this year, and Good Day Chicago decided to give them a ring.

Dial-A-Carol is a student-run program at the University of Illinois Champaign Urbana, which started back in 1960.

Last year , students took more than 4,000 calls from people all over the world, requesting songs like "Jingle Bells" and "White Christmas."

Phone lines are open until just before midnight on Wednesday, Dec. 18. Call 217-332-1882.
