OH come all ye faithful!
And the Evening Star is calling on you to help make this a Christmas to remember. Once again it is that time of year when you can dust off your best singing voice and join hundreds in St Margaret's Church in Ipswich.
The carol service has become an important part of the town's celebrations so hurry because tickets are limited and always sell-out fast.
This year the money raised will be going to the Evening Star's Christmas Appeal, which this year is SARS.
One of the people who will be giving a reading on the night will be SARS honorary treasurer, Stewart Young.

St Margaret's vicar, Rev David Cutts said: "The Evening Star Carol Service is very much part of Christmas at St Margaret's.
"It always attracts crowds of people and we look forward to welcoming many friends again. It is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.
"All this is done in the context of a traditional carol service with the chance to sing some old favourites."
Once again Asda has come to the rescue of the hungry carol singers and free mince pies will be given away on the night.
There will be a nominal £1 charge for the tickets and a collection at the church on the night.
Tickets will be given on a first come first served basis and with time quickly running out for this slice of festive cheer do not delay.
The service is being held on December 17 and starts at 7.30pm.
