day 20:: carolling

On the Sunday before Christmas or thereabouts people from the neighbourhood collect in the local square and sing carols. We have a cup of mulled wine and a mince pie, catch up with people we have not seen for a while. This year it was freezing cold, but there were crowds of people and the singing was better than ever.

In the bleak midwinter, a public sing-song, a glass of sherry and a warm by the fire can only be a good thing.

A good thing indeed and what a great event for the lead up to Christmas. Nothing like that round here.

We often get the town brass band playing on the road on Christmas morning, lovely and festive.
