Today we offer a gift to everyone, nothing expensive but meant from the heart in wishing everyone joy and peace. It does not matter what religion you are, though it is generally associated with Christmas, it can be any faith and any songs that include goodwill and good wishes. You don’t even need to be a good singer, just willing. It is hard to say when caroling began, it was probably during the times of St. Francis of Assisi in the 13th century as Christians sang songs dating back to the 4th and 5th centuries. In those days, singing for ones supper was a common practice and has most likely been the repeated over the years as caroling….but for now a little eggnog, fruitcake or perhaps just a little goodwill for all.
How to celebrate – Go caroling (no matter your religion). Spread joy to those around you. Show up where you are least expected, but most welcome.
