Hello my dear music fans!

This is going to be the last episode of our little “DEEZcover” posts about Christmas traditions around the world, and today we are celebrating “Go Caroling Day”!

Carolling has a long history in the world, potentially existing longer than Christmas itself and having moved into that religious practice from much older roots. This is no surprise, given that the act of singing has long been a form of religious observance, and religious hymns are certainly not a new way of honouring one’s faith.

Carolling itself, however, is specifically used to reference those songs and traditions of Christmas, and for many years was a heavily practised tradition that many people eagerly took part in, whether by joining the carolers or by avidly awaiting their arrival at their doorstep as avatars of Christmas cheer.

So, how many of you are going to go caroling this weekend to spread the Christmas cheer?

I'll give the singing a miss... if you ever heard my voice mid tune you'd be pleased I wasn't sharing my "tones"... 🙂

I'm the worst singer ever so I totally understand your feeling @Rob Igo I would certainly not go caroling either 😂
