Get Your Songbook Out — It’s “Go Caroling Day”


Heading into the Buffalo Sabres hockey game last night, there was a group of high school students singing Christmas songs, and it was appropriate because today is considered Go Caroling Day.

You don’t see as many people doing it these days, and that’s a shame because it’s a great chance to enjoy not only the holiday but to appreciate its meaning.

My sister-in-law in the D.C. area said last year there was a group that came to her door and sang a couple of songs, and it made her feel good.

Christmas caroling still is popular in some areas and among many groups. Scouts and youth groups often plan it as a special musical event. Even family parties and business parties include carolers.

They can be impromptu, but it’s better to plan it out. Scout groups often visit nursing homes and senior citizen centers to spread some cheer. Good idea to call those places ahead of time to arrange a date and time. They probably wouldn’t appreciate you just barging in.

It’s always best if you actually know the words to the songs. And what really makes it a special event is when it’s followed by hot chocolate and cookies afterward.
