The carolers, dressed in early 20th-Century attire, cluster together and silently mouth the words of timeless Christmas carols. This scene is reminiscent of early Owen County years when carolers would gather under the dim gas lights in Owenton to offer songs and hymns of the Christmas season.
Jim Jump was the town lamplighter at that time, and every evening at dusk Jim would take his long pole and light the lamps along Owenton streets, illuminating the town.
At dawn, Jim would return to extinguish the lights and welcome another Owen county day.
