Thread Name: Disappearing Carols
Subject: RE: Disappearing Carols
Village life seems more conducive to carol singing than town life. We play and sing outside for the turning on of the village lights (luckily with gazebo although this year that did little for the wind blowing off the River Trent). We also play and sing carols at all the pub gigs we go to and some can be spectacular. Another village we visit we go from house to house singing. Unfortunately we always get invited in and drinks and eats forced upon us. Someone has to stay sober to drive home.

Down in Yon Forest was always an Easter Carol for us as was Hail Smiling Morn. We have some local to my birthplace including Carol, Carol Gaily and Christmas Bells are Ringing. Long may carols and wassailing continue.
