Is Caroling A Thing Of The Past?

Is Christmas Caroling a thing of the past?

Traditional caroling would mainly focus on the celebration of the birth of Jesus. Christmas caroling is going from house to house. Singing in a loud joyful voice, singing, songs of praises to our Lord and King. Christmas carolers can be heard singing songs such as; Away in a Manger, Silent Night, Do you hear what I hear? Hark the Harold Angel sing, Joy to the world as well as many other.

There are also those that would sing more secular types of songs, songs that would depict winter themes, Santa Claus etc. Examples of these types of song would be; Deck the halls, Frosty the snowman, Rudolph the red nose reindeer and Here comes Santa Claus.

Singing Joyfully

In times past, and possibly even now, Carolers would go from house to house, with sheet music in hand. Bundled up well to stave off the cold. Singing joyfully , bringing those inside , out , to see what was going on. The Carolers would often times be invited indoors , out of the cold, and offered a nice cup of hot chocolate or a hot cup of mulled cider and an array of Christmas treats, such as, cookies and fudge. But the Carolers would not leave and would instead break into song.......SINGING....We want some FIGGY PUDDING, we want some FIGGY PUDDING, we want some FIGGY PUDDING . We won't go until we get some we wont go until we get some, we wont go until we get some . So bring it right now...

Visiting Nursing homes Etc

Christmas Carolers, often children , are brought to Nursing homes,Hospices, Hospitals etc. Not only is this a safe alternative for children, But it brings good cheer to the people residing there. And in this case the children usually come bearing gifts of cookies or candy canes, or a drawing they have created..It does the heart good to see the faces of the elderly brighten upon seeing and hearing the children sing....

      I really like the subject!!! I like Christmas carols and they are fun to sing whether in church around the holiday season or if lucky enough, in a group actually singing carols. Thanks!
