Christmas Caroling

Christmas Caroling.... Caroling can be a wonderful family Christmas time outing. In the days past, caroling was usually done by sleigh, requiring some pre- planning . Potatoes would need to be baked , to then be placed into jacket pockets to keep fingers warm. Likewise bags of sand would be heated to place in the sleigh for keeping feet warm. Today, caroling makes a joyous evening, both the carolers and the one's gifted by the music. Remember, Christmas caroling has been around since the night Jesus was born. It has been said on the night a choir of Angels sang out in celebration......

When I was a kid our church group always went caroling on Sunday evenings to older peoples homes. It brings back alot of sweet memories....

Lovely print you posted, Marietta. As a child, I remember going caroling with other children, door to door in the neighborhood. We had sweet voices, but sadly the motivation of most of the children was a monetary one.
