You know, carolers are sweet and all, and I never actually had them at my door... but I am not sure if I would really enjoy that to be honest, I mean, not intending to be a Scrooge, but wouldn't it be sort of embarassing? What am I supposed to do, how am I to behave while they are belting out the carols in my face? Probably it will feel like forever!! Blame it on my typical virgo side being cynical!! (but believe me I wouldn't behave like bucky or Ronjohn that is a promise!! )

We always have carol singers every year. It wouldn't be Christmas without them!

I serve mulled wine for the adults, warmed fruit punch for the younger ones and hot mincepies. I also give a donation to the collection bucket they carry. One gives the money to needy children in the city, another to foreign missions and the other one chooses a new charity every year.

They usually start with 'Here we come a-wassailling'...

Living in the country, we don't have carollers either. A very nice family that lives near my mother visits her each Christmas season and sings for her. They always have a wonderful garden and bring things to her. Also they have lots of blueberries and pack some in freezer bags for her. They are such a great family and do lots of things together. She used to serve them cookies and cocoa, but is no longer able to do that. She has macular degeneration and can't see well enough to prepare much.

Licia - your mother's neighbours sound wonderful! I am sure that they won't mind not getting the cocoa..... She must be a nice woman for them to make such an effort at Christmas-time.

No way, she'd be distracted by all the sparkly wine bottles!

Before she knew it, she's be at the front door telling the nice folks she wants a photo (Right as the water hits 'em!)

ronjohn, you naughty kitten. You shall have zero pie from me this Christmas.

Now, who's handing out the wine? When do I start singing? (that's something to be very afraid of, bucky)
