Re: Carolling and other defunct traditions?

^^^I have never seen anybody going round the streets from door to door carolling here in sunny Glasgow....i have although seen many a drunk staggering up the road in all weathers at all times of the day or night singing........that's a sort of carolling. LOL

That sounds like the kind of revelry many practiced up until the early to mid 19th century.

Re: Carolling and other defunct traditions?

It doesn't terribly bother me. As long as people are good natured about it, I can get into some good spirits too, even though I don't really touch Christmas at all and I feel very cynical about the religious part of the holiday.

Re: Carolling and other defunct traditions?

I like and welcome groups of organised and talented carollers. Students out to warble for 20 seconds and then expect a quid can get lost though.

I get a lot more of the latter these days.

I think carolers should work this into their rotations.
