So when was the last time you went caroling?

I went a couple of times as a kid, many years ago. I am organizing a caroling event for the CCD kids in our church tomorrow night. I think I am looking forward to it as much as the kids.

About 10 or so years ago, a bunch of people from work got together and went around to the nursing homes, and around town, caroling.

It was funny. In the first retirement home, there was a man who hurried to the door to get out of the main room ASAP so he didn't have to listen to us. There was another man, you could tell that he turned his hearing aid WAY down. It was so hard to keep singing while you watched this play out. When we got out of these we all just cracked up.

Then we went to another nursing home that's right off of our hospital. This one wasn't so funny. We were singing and there was this one little old lady in a wheelchair that didn't want us to leave. She sat there singing with us and waving her hands all over like she was a conductor or something. As we left in the elevator, she was making a fuss, crying and screaming for us to take her along. That was really difficult to watch and it was hard not to imagine the enjoyment she'd probably had gotten out of the holidays in earlier times. God bless her.

Some of my coworkers asked if I wanted to go caroling. I thought they were kidding! I might take them up on it, though, since the kids are always asking me if we can go. I told them people only do that in movies!

I haven't been caroling since I was a child/tween.

I wish you lived near me, I'd love for your gang to carol in front of my house! I'd treat you the same as my group was treated, I'd invite all of you in for hot chocolate and give everyone a handful of change!

That's one thing I've never done, but my kids used to go with their church group when they were younger (all grown adults now)..

We used to take our girl scout troop when my daughter was in scouts. We would go to local nursing homes. It has probably been at least 3or 4 years.

I was in grade school in the 70's. We went to Mike Schmidt's house from the Phillies & was invited to sing for his dinner party. There was an elevator in the house & we all were shocked.

I used to in college with other musician friends. Last year, I went with a group to a nursing home. I met a lovely lady named Grace who used to sing and I sat and sang with her. We both enjoyed it so much. No one else in my family sings, so I rarely get to indulge....
Look me up on Facebook!

Last Christmas. I'll be doing it again on the 20th. We'll share a meal of soup and sandwiches after church, then gather and go out among the neighborhood, and come back for cookies and hot chocolate, hopefully bringing some of the neighbors and their kids with us to share and sing.

Please rescue a cat or kitten today! Most shelters are full.
