Re: Carolling and other defunct traditions?
There's a funny mix of teenagers messing about and thinking they'll make money from it and people who take it very seriously indeed.
Down our way we also get younger kids going for the "Awww! So cute!" response to their performance. The best part is the mangling of the words. For instance - did you know that the ickle lord Jesus was asleep in a shed? You do now. Well worth a quid.
