Christmas carroling

Do you go Christmas carroling at this time of the year? If so, who do you give the money you collect to? What is your favourite Christmas carrol?

I'm more than happy to stand at Victoria station with an A3 sign with "TRAVELBLOG" on it and direct a group of us to a restaurant.


I thought you were going to say that you are happy to stand at Victoria Station with a hat, singing Christmas carols. :D

That might be on the way home - after some good old 'Christmas cheer' ;-) Reply to this

Does anyone actually know all the words of any Christmas carols? I was just about to sit here at my computer singing Christmas carols(because it is 1st December) while tapping away at my keyboard, but then I realised that I only know one line of any of them. :D Reply to this

I never heard of getting any money for Christmas carroling. Around here, (Connecticut and California, U.S.), they just go around the neighborhoods singing to anyone who will listen. You can ask them in for hot cocoa and cookies or a little spiked egg nog but usually no money changes hands. Is that different in other places?

My favorite Christmas Carrol is 'Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire' although I'm not even sure if that's the real title of the song, or just a line from it. I had to actually sing the song to myself just to see if I knew all the words, but I think I do. I also used to love to sing 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' to my daughter when she was little. Children love to hear Santa is on his way and you can really have a lot of fun acting that song out!

Happy Holidays to all of you, wherever you may be!!

Hello Airolg 😊

People often do carol singing here in Europe, to collect money for charity.

Same in New Zealand. The Salvation Army used to walk round one of the shopping malls singing. They would happily accept donations, but never put the jar out asking for money. Reply to this
