Bono Went Caroling on Christmas Eve in Dublin

The U2 frontman led the group in a sing-a-long of "White Christmas" followed by John Lennon's "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)," according to ATU2.com.

This isn't the first time Bono has gone caroling during Christmas.  He also sang on Grafton Street last year to raise money for the Dublin Simon Community, a group that helps the homeless.

A video of the caroling can be seen at ATU2.com.
