Christmas Caroling



On Saturday we had a Christmas party with my family, and in addition to sampling the baking that everyone brought, we also sang some carols. There was the old, old-fashioned way of doing carols, with my mother pumping away at the old organ that was her great-grandmother's. You have to pump the foot pedals to push the air through it, so her stamina didn't last that long.

Then we switched over to what seems the exact opposite: karaoke carols on youtube. Carbon's favorite carol is "three ships", and Hypatia likes "deck the halls" this year, which she calls the "holly and jolly song".

  1. So fun! I loved singing carols around my grandmother's piano when I was a kid (my aunt Betty could play ANYTHING by ear!)

    My kids are learning some easy Christmas songs for guitar and piano. Maybe they can carry on the caroling tradition with their families!
