I've never seen anyone carol in my life. I don't think I'd like it.
I used to live in a house that faces the main market square of a small German city.
I ended up hating christmas markets (Weihnachtsmarkt) because even with closed windows I could hear people singing christmas songs, untalented kids play christmas songs on their trumpets and tubas, even more kids singing christmas songs, weird Russian christmas songs with even weirder instruments, then some more kids singing christmas songs and occasionally 2 Polish guys singing Italian songs and opera.

All fucking day long.

Like Cultcross said there's teenagers thinking they'll make some money.
