Dec. 20th – Go Caroling Day
Caroling probably came out of Wassailing, which came out of people traveling about in search of cider to warm themselves. Perhaps they were occasionally required to sing for their cider!?!
Anyway, Caroling became a part of the Christmas tradition, although recently it has tapered off considerably. (You could get arrested for trespassing) It’s still fun to think of those days when you could bring joy to someone’s life by standing outside their door and singing them a song.
How to celebrate – Go Caroling (Friends and relatives are your best target.) Go Wassailing! (Good luck finding cider) Have a Merry Christmas.
